Bioengineering with only dna

Amplification and reproduction


Bioengineering with only dna

Amplification and reproduction

Cons:

Spontaneous generation

Not really alive:

more like crystallization in a supersaturated solution

Pro:

If we know what we’re looking for, we can amplify its concentration dynamically.

Bioengineering with only dna

Amplification and reproduction


Interaction with general chemistry

Interaction with general chemistry

Dna engineering as a nanomedical tool

DNA engineering as a nanomedical tool

  • Instrument-free disease detection

  • Embedded control of apoptosis

  • Control of developmental biology
