ALife Boston

From FreeBio



ALife Boston is a friendly discussion group for artificial life, synthetic biology, digital evolution, molecular systems biology and other related disciplines. My thesis work blends these fields with quantum information processing. Many people in the Boston area have begun to synthesize new biomolecular systems, build useful quantum mechanical machines, or are interested in the philosophical, economic or social implications of such work. Our meetings should complement the Systems Biology Theory Lunch by emphasizing the possibilities of life as it could be rather than life as it is. Meetings are open to everyone and focus on current research. The seminar was originally founded by Carlo Maley, Geo Homsy and Erik Rauch as the MIT ALife group; it has been continued by Alexander (Sasha) Wait as ALife Boston. To get an idea of what was discussed in the past, you can browse the list of MIT ALife talks 1994-1998 or look at the topics below.
