As observant readers will doubtless be aware, the generous pre-order deal (steep discount + free shipping + 4 free digital books) for Stephen Meyer’s forthcoming book, Darwin’s Doubt, was extended into the month of May by popular demand. Click here to take advantage now!

You can also listen to this ‘ID the Future’ podcast featuring Casey Luskin’s interview with Stephen Meyer about his new book. This is not to be missed.

OT: Engineers design cells that can compute logarithms, divide and take square roots - May 15, 2013 Excerpt: The circuits perform those calculations in an analog fashion by exploiting natural biochemical functions that are already present in the cell rather than by reinventing them with digital logic, thus making them more efficient than the digital circuits pursued by most synthetic biologists,,, Sarpeshkar has previously identified thermodynamic similarities between analog transistor circuits and the chemical circuits that take place inside cells. In 2011, he took advantage of those similarities to model biological interactions between DNA and proteins in an electronic circuit, using only eight transistors.,,, In the new Nature paper, Sarpeshkar, Lu and colleagues have done the reverse—mapping analog electronic circuits onto cells. http://phys.org/news/2013-05-analog-circuits-cells-logarithms-square.html bornagain77
