Programming Language Developed to Build Synthetic DNA

Programming Language Developed to Build Synthetic DNA

A study has been carried out by a group of researchers from the University of Washington. As per the study published in the Nature Nanotechnology, a programming language has been developed to help in coming up with network.

The network in medicine field will prove beneficial when it comes to acting as drug delivers and disease detectors at cellular level. With this, another thing will also get known and that is DNA molecules interaction way in a cell or test tube.

Georg Seelig from the university was of the view that they are aiming to come up with a technology that can be used to come up with general-purpose tools.

"If you want a computer to do something else, you just reprogram it. This project is very similar in that we can tell chemistry what to do", said Seelig.

It has been unveiled that Seelig and colleague Eric Klavins has received $2 million in the form of funding from the National Science Foundation. The funding is a part of a national effort to make advancements in molecular programming.

Seelig has affirmed that the language will be used to support the cause and has termed the programming language as quite vital.
