Microsoft will solve cancer within 10 years by reprogramming diseased cells.
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Medicine
Dr Jasmin Fisher believes scientists may be able to control and regulate cancer within a decade.
Microsoft believes that what's going on with cancer is a computational problem.
In a dramatic change of direction for the technology giant, the company has assembled a “small army” of the world’s best biologists, programmers and engineers who are tackling cancer as if it were a bug in a computer system.
This summer Microsoft opened its first wet laboratory where it will test out the findings of its computer scientists who are creating huge maps of the internal workings of cell networks.
The researchers are even working on a computer made from DNA which could live inside cells and look for faults in bodily networks, like cancer. If it spotted cancerous chances it would reboot the system and clear out the diseased cells.
