Molecular Computer Runs a Billion Simultaneous Programs

`A new version of a biological computer has been built that can run up to a billion different programs simultaneously.

The computer, developed at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, is made entirely of DNA molecules and enzymes.

It is an improvement over a previous version built three years ago by scientists at Technion and Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science.

That version was limited to 765 simultaneous programs.’
