DescriptionThe complexity of cells and their ability to process information has a lot in common with computers. Andrew Phillips and his team at Microsoft are applying concepts of computer programming to biological research, creating a rigorous framework for triggering actions within a cell.

So better understanding how they operate, and how to program them, will truly be a moonshot effort.
