Cybergenetics

Cyber genetics, Norbert Wiener presented a vision where the study of control and communication in the animal and the machine are unified. The field of Cybernetics (art of steering) was born. Predating the discovery of the structure of DNA and the ensuing molecular biology revolution, cybernetic applications in the life sciences at the time were limited. More than 60 years later, the confluence of modern genetic manipulation techniques, powerful measurement technologies, and advanced analysis methods is enabling a new area of research in which systems, communications, and control theory notions are used for synthetically regulating cellular processes at the gene level. We refer to this nascent field as Cyber genetics.
