Detection of allergens in food

  • the presence of certain alergen promote the expression of FP.
  • must be fast reaction. ie. detection on the spot.
  • cell-free medium and can be stored in bottles under normal condition.

Biological Circuits

  • variable resistors, capaceitors, a catalog of resistors ...
  • setup a basic ALU(arithmetic logic unit), from pre-designed gates
  • biological clock; counts up in seconds or minutes (not countdown like peking07-hopcount), something similar but not elegant enough has been done by Harvard2006[1]

Biological Manufacturing

  • Bacterial cells to assist in production of things like biofuels/fertilisers/etc.
  • Cheap and easy production of pharmaceuticals.
