Great minds think alike. Thank you Microsoft.

Do you remember my post “Need a DNA Scanner, DNA constructor, powerful computer, a lot of material and somebody, who has genetics education“?

There I wrote:

“Let’s create a fucking virus, which assembles based on our DNA sequence. I short protein sequence – much shorter, than DNA itself. Then, after cell division let a new one survive only if they both have the same identical virus copy, and kill it, if not.”

Now, we have some good news from Microsoft. They have assembled a “small army” of the world’s best biologists, programmers and engineers who are tackling cancer as if it were a bug in a computer system.

The researchers are even working on a computer made from DNA which could live inside cells and look for faults in bodily networks, like cancer. If it spotted cancerous chances it would reboot the system and clear out the diseased cells.

What I can say? Cool! Great minds think alike.

Do we need a supercomputer to calculate a virtual body model?

Reading about huge resources needed for DNA calculation and even more resources needed to create a full body model, I’ve got this question.

Do we need a supercomputer to calculate a virtual body model?

Yes, and No.

How is Bitcoin mining process going now?

Yes, they use the specialized chips. Such chips are made for specific task only. This makes them cheap and efficient for their job.

I think, we have to do the same to create a virtual body model based on DNA calculation. We need to split the tasks between specified chips, made for just one specific task and create a super-cluster of them.

Dixi.

Need a DNA Scanner, DNA constructor, powerful computer, a lot of material and somebody, who has genetics education

Yesterday night my grandma has passed away.
She was the best in this world.
Please, understand this right: this world is amazing place, and most of these people are really good. And in this good place and good people SHE WAS THE BEST.

So, I strongly disagree with current situation. Don’t tell me, this is natural. A nature has made us with an ability to change a nature itself, that is why it is natural to change natural things.

If everything is just in amount of DNA replication errors, and Hayflick limit just protect the organisms from turning into big cancer tumor, then we need another way to avoid these errors.

Let’s say, we use hash function with the check-sums to check the data integrity, when copying the files. Why we cannot use the same or kind of algorithm for our cells?

Let’s create a fucking virus, which assembles based on our DNA sequence. I short protein sequence – much shorter, than DNA itself. Then, after cell division let a new one survive only if they both have the same identical virus copy, and kill it, if not.

This mechanism may work as our biological data integrity check with not too much energy cost.

So, I need a DNA Scanner, DNA constructor, powerful computer, a lot of material and somebody, who has genetics education. And I miss my grandma.
