A team of scientists from Zurich has managed to create a biocomputer using human cells. A biocomputer is a system made out of living cells capable of processing information, and the ETH Zurich team has successfully used human cells to construct a simple computational circuit.
In a recent paper published in the journal Nature Methods, a team of researchers from the University of Basel and ETH Zurich discussed the methods they used to create the biocomputer. The biocomputer was made out of nine groups of cells, arrayed within a 3-D lattice structure. Every cell module, or computational node, was created to react to different chemicals. The chemical inputs impacted the cells in a similar manner to how electrical inputs are used in normal computers.
