Prof. David Soloveichik's project, titled "Robust molecular computation: error-correcting reaction networks and leakless DNA circuits" focuses on the theory and implementation of engineered molecular systems that perform computation. Such "smart" molecules could provide the foundation for disruptive innovations in a range of applications, e.g., manufacturing, chemical sensing, synthetic biology and medicine. Unlike silicon chips, molecular computers could, in principle, operate inside cells and control their activity. Prof. Soloveichik’s work addresses the key challenge of robustness in the disordered and error-prone chemical environment.
