SCRIBE overview (Animation)

The SCRIBE platform developed by the Lu lab at MIT enables long-lasting analog memory to be stored in the genomic DNA of living cells. This technology effectively turns DNA into a “tape recorder” that can store information in biological systems and opens up a plethora of new applications in biosensing, biotechnology, biological computing, and basic […]
