Guest Post: Challenges and opportunities for synthetic biology

30 Jan

In an quite interesting article of spanish experts in respect of synthetic biology and transhumanism, some visions and outlooks are given concerning synthetic biology and gen altering.

Computing is an appropriate formal to describe and reproduce biological phenomena.

There are several views on the matter, one of them considers biological phenomena as systems of interacting components that can be analysed and simulated with increasing detail at both the level of components and the level of the whole system.

… biology has had, until now, no appropriate language to characterize formally the complex phenomena of living organisms.

Another assumption they make is, that biological systems and computer models are not intrinsically different.

It is worth to read the full article, as it shows an interesting contribution in this area. Read it here.
