DNA Chip. How Stuff Works


Electronics is emerging as a new branch called Bionics in combination with biology since there are possibilities to explore the ideas from living organisms. Micro organisms are now considering as the major source for developing DNA chips, Molecular switch etc. This new field is the Synthetic biology.

The DNA chips opened a new era in medical research and medical diagnostics. The DNA chip can provide large quantity of genomic data of microorganisms in a few hours, so that identification of the microbe is very easy. A DNA chip is a” Micro array” of genes attached at fixed locations on a solid support like glass slide or silicon membrane.

Peptide Computing


Peptide Computing refers to the form of model computing using Peptides and Molecular biology instead of the common silicon based chip technology. Peptide Computing rely on the fact that Antibodies show affinity towards Peptides and Proteins. Like DNA computing, Peptide computing uses the interaction between the peptide chains and antibodies.
