Information processing

Schmitt trigger

Bologna worked on a Schmitt trigger last year (University of Bologna 2007). Domenico already gave an explanation about this device. The project is also very well documented so have a look at their site. More about the Schmitt trigger can be found here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schmitt_trigger).

What can be done with a Schmitt trigger?

  • Create some kind of oscillator - I think Domenico also mentioned this already.

Flip-flop

A digital circuit that can remember it's last state and is thereby capable of storing one bit of information. It could be interesting to make a genetic circuit that can do the same ([1], [2] ).

Other interesting stuff

  • Somewhere I read something about this 'magnetic' bacteria (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnetotactic_bacteria) - maybe this can be used for orientation/movement. This organism is already successfully used to produce electrical energy.
  • In many project GFP is used to inform us about the transcription of a certain protein. FRET also uses fluorescent proteins, but they are used to inform us about the binding of proteins. Maybe this can also be used as an alternative output of a system.
