Synthetic Biology —  Life Redesigned

Synthetic biology is a relatively new field of science that includes both the design and formation of entirely new biological systems or components, and the redesign and production of natural biological systems. According to Allied Market Research, the worldwide synthetic biology market will reach $38.7 billion by 2020. The factors contributing to recent breakthroughs in synthetic biology include the falling cost of genomic sequencing, the improved ability to sequence larger genomes, the advancement of the analytical power of sequencers, the availability of gene sequencing from third-party providers, and the democratization of gene editing due to CRISPR-Cas9 technology. CRISPR-Cas9 has not only improved the ability of researchers and scientists to target, edit, and activate or deactivate genes, but also to rewire complex biological circuits and systems.

Nobel Laureate Frances H. Arnold’s Innovative Discovery

Directed evolution (DE) is the acceleration of natural evolution using an iterative laboratory processes at the molecular level. Directed evolution of enzymes and binding proteins was a concept that was theorized in by German biophysicist Manfred Eigen — a Nobel Prize in Chemistry laureate, who was awarded the prize in 1967 for his research on fast chemical reactions.

Will Quantum Computing Bend the Arrow of Time?

British astronomer, physicist, and mathematician, Sir Arthur S. Eddington put forth the concept of the “time’s arrow” in the 1920’s [1]. Eddington theorized that time is asymmetrical, and moves in one direction from the irreversible past to the present, then forward towards the future. He proposed that the reason why time moves forward is due to causal asymmetry (cause and effect). Does this arrow of time hold true in quantum computing?
