University of Washington: Fall Lecture Series


Each fall, the UW College of Engineering partners with the UW Alumni Association to present a series of free lectures featuring their distinguished faculty and industry experts. The 2009 lectures are being broadcast on UWTV and are available on-demand.

Researchers Create Logic Circuits From DNA


Researchers at Duke University recently used DNA to craft tiny chips used in computers and electronic circuits. By mixing DNA snippets with other molecules and exposing them to light, researchers created self-assembling, DNA-based logic circuits. Once perfected the tech could serve as an endlessly abundant, cheap alternative to silicon semiconductors. Chris Dwyer, lead researcher on the project, says that one grad student using DNA to make self-assembling circuits could produce more logic circuits in one day than the global silicon chip industry can create in an entire month!"
