Creating and/or programming the immune system

A programming language for living cells Thanks to Fabricio Paes de Medeiros for calling attention to this example of an engineered innate immune system. The immune system links the epigenetic landscape to the physical landscape of supercoiled DNA, which protects the organized genomes of all living genera from virus-driven entropy. Excerpt: The sensors can detect different compounds, such as oxygen or glucose, as well as light, temperature, acidity, and other environmental conditions. My comment: It will be interesting to see…

My comment: The amino acids are nutrient-dependent and linked to supercoiled DNA by energy-dependent changes in the innate immune system. The innate immune system links metabolic networks and genetic networks to supercoiled DNA. The fact that the amino acid substitutions link the innate immune system to all biodiversity in…
