BioCom2: NSF Workshop on Biological Computations and Communications

CCIS Professor Guevara Noubir organized a recent NSF workshop in Boston dedicated to bringing together researchers with broad interests in computation and communication in the bio-nano world. A mix of scientists from often polarized fields such as Computer Science, Bioengineering, Mathematics, and Physics attended to foster interdisciplinary discussions and collaborations. Specific topics of interest included:

  • Engineering synthetic biological circuits with communication interfaces
  • Microbial communication networks
  • Wireless energy transfer at the nano-scale
  • Quantum coherence in biological systems
