Submission + - Self-Assembling proteins to revolutinize computing

parallel_prankster writes: EETimes reports on Clathrin, a protein found in every cell of the human body, could become a self-assembler of future information processing systems that are smaller, faster and cheaper than today's computer circuitry, according to a company investigating the technology. Boston-based ExQor Technologies has demonstrated that Clathrin Proteins can be formed into nano-sized biolasers suitable for transmitting information. It expects the technology will initially be used in medical applications. The precision of clathrin's self-assembly process , and ultra-small size also could be used to improve solar cells and batteries with nanoscale electronic and photonic properties not possible with silicon.
