Cell biology

Terminology and concepts from computer science and engineering are becoming more common in biology labs as scientists re-engineer the activity of cells for specific applications. They are gaining unprecedented capabilities both from genetic-editing tools that have been around for a while, such as those that use viruses or proteins called zinc fingers, and from new CRISPR–Cas9 technology that allows more-targeted editing of DNA.
