Life is controlled by DNA-based circuits, and these are similar to the circuits found in electronic devices like smartphones and computers,” said Rice bioengineer Jeffrey Tabor, the lead researcher on the project. “A major difference is that electrical engineers measure the signals flowing into and out of electronic circuits as voltage, whereas bioengineers measure genetic circuit signals as genes turning on and off.”
