We are researching addressable cell-to-cell communication in E. coli. By manipulating the process of conjugation, our cells may selectively pass plasmids to other cells. Information contained in the transferred plasmids may be regulated translationally by implementing RNA based locks and keys. These key research advances may allow for implementation of complex systems of NAND logic gates in bacterial cultures.
