Research Overview

This effort is broken down into five distinct research areas: Digital Biological Computation (Pollock), Analog Biological Computation (Zenith),  Biological Memory (Carnac), Biological Communication  I (Whisper), and Biological Communication II (Hail Mary). These areas: (1) are a comprehensive set of concepts to realize higher, system level functions; (2) represent natural expertise and collaboration areas; (3) offer metric opportunities for state-of-the-art technologies; (4) can be successfully achieved within the project period yet represent an aggressive research agenda with demonstrable milestones. Each area is organized as follows:
