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.
