EE Times RNA computer clears 10-bit hurdle
"Princeton University researchers claim to have reached a new level of complexity in DNA computing. The group has demonstrated an RNA-based computer capable of solving mathematical problems that were encoded as 10-bit strings. Strands of RNA containing 1,024 base pairs were encoded with every possible solution to a specific chess problem. Ribonuclease digestion progressively narrowed down the possible solutions until only the 43 correct solutions — plus one incorrect one — remained. ”

Bioinformatics will be at the core of biology in the 21st century. In fields ranging from structural biology to genomics to biomedical imaging, ready access to data and analytical tools are fundamentally changing the way investigators in the life sciences conduct research and approach problems. Complex, computationally intensive biological problems are now being addressed and promise to significantly advance our understanding of biology and medicine. No biological discipline will be unaffected by these technological breakthroughs.
