Center for Biological Sequence Analysis, DTU, room 225 building 301
Everybody is welcome. Registration is not necessary.
In the first part of this talk, I am going to present a recently published work in which we proposed a DNA network that processes information by implementing computing paradigms abstracted from natural cellular biochemical reaction networks. Through chemical kinetics simulations we show that this synthetic DNA network can be programmed to implement a function that can be made robust to network dosage. Then in the second part of the talk, still from the information processing perspective, I will discuss ideas on how cells could be investigated, both in a normal and in a diseased state.
