Complex Biological Machines From Yeast – One Step Closer



Complex Biological Machines
Researches of Imperial College, London, displayed a new way to create a type of biological wire that interrelates with DNA using proteins and behaves like electronic circuitry chains. Previously scientists operated with limited number of wires which limited the possible complexity of an outcome. The demonstrated bio-wire can be re-engineered again and again and gives the opportunity to create uncountable connections between DNA components.

The scientists have also expanded the pool of basic DNA components called ‘promoters’. Those re-program the yeast to execute various missions. All this supports progress in synthetic biology. Future applications of the discovery may result in tiny yeast machines seeking contaminants in water or yeast able to record environmental conditions.
