1.Look at the photos and scan the text below. What are DNA Computer and Nanomedicine? Share your ideas with the class.
2.Why are science people working on DNA computing and Nanomedicine? Read the text and share your answers with your classmates.
DNA Computer: DNA stores genetic information in the organisms. What makes DNA special is that it stores unlimited information in a limited space. Just one milligram of DNA is capable of storing all the printed material in the world. Nowadays, science people are working on DNA computing. They have even designed the first prototypes such as MAYA-II. If DNA computing is perfected, computers will become capable of storing amounts of information that are hard to imagine by today’s standard.
Nanomedicine: The usage of nanotechnology in medicine is endless. Science people are working on nanomolecules to destroy only cancer cells. It makes possible to send the drugs to specific parts of the body. With the help of nanotechnology, microscopic robots will perform ultra-delicate surgeries, repair damaged tissues, or hunt down and destroy certain cells, like cancer cells or bacteria. Nanomedicine is currently in its infancy, but it may be the biggest breakthrough in modern medicine since the first vaccine.
