Programming Cells with Computer-like Logic

Similar to how computer scientists use logical language to have their programs make accurate AND, OR and NOT decisions towards a final goal, “Ribocomputing Devices” (stylized here in yellow) developed by a team at the Wyss Institute can now be used by synthetic biologists to sense and interpret multiple signals in cells and logically instruct their ribosomes (stylized in blue and green) to produce different proteins.
