A landmark moment in the area which this blog is most concerned with: what happens when computation (software) is physically exerted upon biology - in sum ‘wetware’.
This wetware has now been demonstrated with impressive results at the Protein Design Institute at the University of Washington.

Computer-designed proteins that can recognize and interact with small biological molecules are now a reality. Scientists have succeeded in creating a protein molecule that can be programmed to unite with three different steroids.
