MATCHIT Objectives and Progress

Summary of overall MATCHIT objectives:

  1. Create DNA-addressable chemical micro- and nano- chemtainers in both aqueous and organic solvents.
  2. Demonstrate autonomous chemical package delivery by address matching to both floating (chemtainer-chemtainer) and external (chemtainer-location) addresses.
  3. Show that recursive programmable reaction processing is possible with chemtainers.
  4. Use DNA computation to implement chemtainer re-addressing.
  5. Construct an electronically programmable matrix for chemtainer processing with MEMS technology.
  6. Develop a computer language, physical simulation, design tools and IT architecture for the artificial subcellular matrix.


The MATCHIT work packages are organized as follows:
