Weeknote #4 (w/e 6/6/10)

I've spent the past week in Madrid, at the Universidad Politecnica. I was a Visiting Professor in the Faculty of Informatics, delivering a series of lectures on "molecular and cellular computing" to their Masters-level students.

In the past, some people have expressed an interest in the material, so I thought I'd make it available here. A lot of it is based on my book Theoretical and Experimental DNA Computation (Springer, 2005), although there's a lot of new material in the second half of the series.

The lectures are as follows (links to PDF versions of the slides):

Day 1: Molecular Computing

1. Introduction and historical motivation.

2. The first experiment.

3. Subsequent work.

Day 2: From in vitro to in vivo

1. Models, lab work, and the transition.

2. Laboratory implementations.

Day 3: Biological Engineering

1. Biological background.

2. Synthetic biology.

3. Synthetic Biology II.
