Programming Life


September 27, 2011


Life is a product of Living Software: programmable matter that orchestrates a range of remarkable functions, from the self-assembly of every organism on Earth, to the ability to recognise and fight pathogens, to creating intelligence, to powering the planet. If we could program life it would form the foundations for a revolution in medicine, energy and agriculture. And computing. Many challenges currently exist to programming life. We are pioneering techniques to overcome these challenges.
