RNA For Universal Computation

Written on March 14, 2021

I gave Journal Club to the Pehlevan lab on the paper An RNA­-Based Theory of Natural Universal Computation by Hessameddin Akhlaghpour. I am sharing my slides here in case they are of interest to anyone!

My slides should be considered to give a high level overview of the ideas in the paper but I recommend reading the paper in full as it is well written and accessible. Hessam’s blog is also great.

For those interested to learn more about the potential for intracellular learning capabilities I recommend reading this paper.
