Detection of allergens in food

  • the presence of certain alergen promote the expression of GFP.
  • must be fast reaction. ie. detection on the spot.
  • cell-free medium and can be stored in bottles under normal condition.

Biological Circuits

  • variable resistors, capaceitors, a catalog of resistors ...
  • setup a basic ALU(arithmetic logic unit), from pre-designed gates
  • biological clock; counts up in seconds or minutes (not countdown like peking07-hopcount), something similar but not elegant enough has been done by Harvard2006

Biological Manufacturing

  • Bacterial cells to assist in production of things like biofuels/fertilisers/etc.
  • Cheap and easy production of pharmaceuticals.

Biological Control


In vivo sensors, processors and actuators

Bacteria have remarkable abilities to sense, process and actuate. These attributes of bacteria are potentially useful in designing and fabricating them for therapeutic purposes. One good example is here. [1] (more...)
