COMP 150-10, Computing with Biological Parts. The intersection of engineering, biology and computing is poised for potentially transformative effects on our society. We will look at how living organisms compute, from humans down to bacteria -- and how we might reprogram that computation. We will focus on bioelectricity (e.g., in our brains) and gene-based computing (in most cells of all organisms). Please see https://www.eecs.tufts.edu/~joelg/bio-parts/ for more detail.
