The EHOP computer is a proof of principle for harnessing the machinery of the cell for the purposes of computing. Segments of DNA can also act as digital storage devices, since a sequence of forward and backward units are analogous to a sequence of 0's and 1's. Image:dc_practical.jpg

Our system also has implications for basic biological research. For example, the burnt pancake problem is a model for studying rearrangements of syntenic gene regions during evolution. Image:dc_basic.jpg
