Programming Life: Gigabase

Brogramming for life: Gigabase is your virtual cell. Give it infrastructure, give it metabolites. Add metabolism and protein synthesis. Finally design some DNA and some transporters. Press simulate and see how the metabolites are transpoterd, consumed and converted, while the other compounds are produced and synthesized. One day the virutal cell will turn design into real biological computers.
