In the 1950s, computers were giant machines that filled buildings and served a variety of arcane functions. Today they fit into our pockets or backpacks, and help us work, communicate and play.
“Biological labs are housed in big buildings and the technology is hard to access,” he added. “But we are changing that. We are enabling people to interact with biological materials and perform experiments the way they interact with computers today. We call this interactive biotechnology.”
Riedel-Kruse and his team have created three related projects that begin to define this new field of interactive biotechnology.
“Biotechnology today is very similar to where computing technology used to be,” said Ingmar Riedel-Kruse, an assistant professor of bioengineering at Stanford.
