Human Kidney Cells Turned into Tiny Bio-Computers by Boston Scientists

Human Kidney Cells Turned into Tiny Bio-Computers by Boston ScientistsA new was discovered by a team of scientists from Boston University to hack into mammalian calls and human cells in making them to follow logical command directions and it is similar as computer can do. But, it wasn’t the first discovery from these scientists for programming cells to their instructions. Most of the previous successful researches used Escherichia coli and it was much simpler to operate. These scientists were skillful in programming human kidney cells into bowing down 109 different sets of instructions. Those cells were responding to specific environmental conditions by following different types of specific instructions. They successfully accomplished task as various other teams were failed to do by using DNA recombination. The genetic recombination motivations have the ability to recognize and attach together 2 targets in a DNA string and cuts everything in between.

They inserted another genetic in the same cells to provoke the recombination in order to start the process of cutting. So, the scientists successfully programmed cells to brighten up without containing their used DNA recombination. They might use proteins in the future linked with specific diseases by using this method as a diagnostic tool. A researcher Wong said that their current sets of instructions have been considered as the proofs of concept. Some other conceivable applications include operating T cells for killing tumors by using proteins and it can discover at least two to three cancer cell biomarkers. This method might be used for turning stem cells into any type of cell they need by using different instructions and to generate tissues on command.
