Extracting logic gates from a metabolic network


In this article we will show how synthetic biology can be used to design artificial bio-devices that can perform successively the samples intake, its analysis and provide an integrated response. The main part of our study is focused on the analysis task. This task will be performed by a logic function applied to the output of the sensors that respond to the bio-markers of the targeted pathology. This logic function is computed using logic circuits made of interconnected logic gates. For this purpose, a library of basic logic gates that can be wired together so as to function correctly in the same environment, will be automatically extracted from the metabolic networks of living organisms.
