Science Researcher Update: Spotlight on Meetings, Conferences, and Events

Towards Programmable Biology (ToProB) - Satellite Workshop at ECAL 2015

Posted on Jun 2, 2015 8:48:00 AM

 
Workshop - York, United Kingdom
 
Synthetic Biology’s vision to repurpose living cells as substrates for general computation has manifested itself in genetic circuit designs that attempt to implement Boolean logic gates, digital memory, oscillators, and other circuits from electrical engineering. Yet, the various achievements in the realm of Synthetic Biology remain isolated and generally lack the modularity and scalability of their electronic counterparts
This ECAL 2015 satellite workshop revisits cornerstone achievements in Synthetic Biology research that address general computability in biological substrates, in order to demarcate key in-vivo and in-silico
challenges of this novel research area. Topics will deal with how paradigms borrowed from digital, electronic devices are best implemented in large-scale biological substrates, and whether unconventional
computing paradigms, such as those developed in the research field of Artificial Life, might offer more  promising routes toward full-fledgedbiological computation.
