ALIFE 2019 – How Can Artificial Life Help Solve Societal Challenges?

Posted on

ALIFE2019_adv

Artificial Life has historically been regarded by its adversaries as an academic “hobby” with little relation to real life. We feel that these days are past, as in fact, our interdisciplinary and constantly self-innovating discipline brings together a set of skills and perspectives with a unique potential to tackle some of the most pressing societal challenges of our times.

Emanuela Torellia, Marisa Manzanoa, Sachin K. Srivastavaa, Robert S. Marks

Abstract: In the quest of greater sensitivity and specificity of diagnostic systems, one continually searches for alternative DNA hybridization methods, enabling greater versatility and where possible field-enabled detection of target analytes. We present, herein, a hybrid molecular self-assembled scaffolded DNA origami entity,
