(October 14, 2009) Susan Weininger of Molecular Lock Corporation introduces molecular locks, protein assemblies that can turn genes on and off. She then discusses how the structure and action of Molecular Locks make them uniquely suited to engineering new biological circuits that can run parallel to existing naturally occurring biological circuits. Biological circuit design has many of the same features of electronic circuits and software, including logic elements, causal conditions, clocks and loops.
