On May 19th, 2016 during the Great Lakes Symposium on VLSI (http://www.glsvlsi.org/), the Living Computing Project sponsored a special session entitled “Creating Circuits with Living Systems Using Synthetic Biology”. The session was moderated by Prof. Douglas Densmore. The talks were from LCP members Jake Beal and Jon Babb. In addition, Alec Nielsen also presented.
The talks were:
Jacob Beal (BBN), Engineering Complex Behaviors in Biological Organisms
Alec Nielsen (MIT), Genetic Circuit Design Automation
Jonathan Babb (MIT), Programmable Organoids for Drug Development, pictured above
The Living Computing Project was also a general sponsor of the conference.
