|When they’re not locking each other in a 4 C freezer or arguing about whether Dennis Kucinich is anti-American, the Princeton iGEM team is hard at work: to do with neurons what electrical engineers had already done with silicon chips back when the Charleston was the dance craze sweeping the nation. They are a motley crew of accomplished coffee thieves with majors ranging from chemical engineering to economics, which probably explains why they can’t agree upon anything and settle their differences with cold torture.
The goal of the Princeton iGEM team is to utilize the considerable capabilities of neurons and in particular of neuronal networks – in terms of speed of transmission of information, physical and programmable versatility – by designing neural networks using gene-regulatory circuits and microfabrication of surfaces.
