Happy Taxonomist Appreciation Day!

And Vernal Equinox

And Perigean Full Moon.

One important characteristic of a theory is that is has survived repeated attempts to falsify it. Contrary to your understanding, all available evidence confirms it. --Subbie

Do we get ice cream?

Yep, and peanut-butter chocolate-chip cookies that taste absolutely delicious, but are fat free and sugar free. Nobel Prize material, that. Chemistry.

Since you brought up chemistry ...

molecular computing system

quote:
Computer design meets potions class: A little of vial 1 and a little of vial 2 yield six-bit computations encoded in DNA

"Think of them as nano apps,"

The system works by self-assembly: small, specially designed DNA strands stick together to build a logic circuit while simultaneously executing the circuit algorithm.

"The ability to run any type of software program without having to change the hardware is what allowed computers to become so useful. We are implementing that idea in molecules, essentially embedding an algorithm within chemistry to control chemical processes."


Repeat: "essentially embedding an algorithm within chemistry to control chemical processes"

Now that is chemistry.

Thank you for the thread.
