Recombinatorial Logic

"Logic gates evoke images of circuit boards, but cells are arguably equally good in relying on logic computations. [..] In recent years, there have been multiple reports on rationally designed, genetically encoded logic gates and circuits in living cells. [...] Two studies, [...] by Bonnet et al. and [...] Siuti et al., describe approaches that produce any of the 16 gates, including the notorious XNOR and XOR, in a compact manner by making relatively minor tweaks to the gates' genetic building blocks."
