MVP Open Day 2011 at Cambridge

Microsoft Research arranged MVP Open Day 2011 at Cambridge on Oct 14, 2011. Beautiful university, made me feel like giving up my job and going back to study. Amazing research work going there, highly thought provoking. The session on DNA programming was out of the world. The most surprising thing I learnt that a 10cm long DNA strand can hold 10TB worth digitally encoded data and cells are thousand times more robust computing system than silicon based chips. Moreover, cells are self-powered, super energy efficient micro processors, hundred years ahead of Intel processors.

Can’t wait for the day when we will be able to use C# to program DNA:

protected void CancerCell_Found(object body, CellEventArgs e) { this.Attack(e.TargetCell); }

Here’s my presentation slide. Nothing NDA or DNA in this, feel free to distribute.
