MIT article about Bacterial Cells As Living Calculators. Calculations are analog due natural biochemical function exploit.

"MIT engineers have transformed bacterial cells into living calculators that can compute logarithms, divide, and take square roots, using three or fewer genetic parts."

"The researchers are now trying to create analog circuits in nonbacterial cells, including mammalian cells. They are also working on expanding the library of genetic parts that can be incorporated into the circuits."
