Scientists at Stanford University presented the remarkable production of genetic devices that work like a biological computer.
The results, published on "Science" (28 March 2013), present the development of innovative genetic transistors that can be induced into biological cells and switched on/off in certain circumstances.
Nucleic Acids Research devotes a single issue in July to papers describing web-based software resources of value to the biological community.
The emphasis of the current issue is on network and pathway analysis, high-throughput sequencing data analysis and biological text mining.
