Overview:
Every once in a while a revolutionary product comes along that changes everything. You are very fortunate, if you can work at least on one of these products during your career. There have been several major breakthroughs in medicine. Biological computers are the next revolutionary product that will change the way medicine is practiced.
What are biological computers? In traditional silicon-based computers, the work is done by chips and circuit boards. In biological computing, the machinery of life replaces the chips and circuit boards of traditional computing.
Biological computers apply the recent discoveries from the field of Synthetic Biology. Synthetic Biology (engineering with biological parts) is becoming the defining science of the 21st century. Recent scientific developments in Synthetic Biology make the dream of biological computing a reality. The possibilities are mind blowing and will revolutionize the way we will do personalized medicine.
Our Vision:
CytoComp empowers individuals to take control of their health through safely and effortlessly leveraging the power of biological computing applications for personalized medicine, fitness, and health.
Our Mission:
CytoComp`s mission is to lead the global revolution in biological computing. By applying synthetic biology and nanobioelectronics, we engineer solutions to monitor and control biological systems.
We are developing a general purpose biological microprocessor. This microprocessor takes both a biological and electrical signal as input and output. Thus users can track input and output in the microprocessor via a smartphone interface.
The practical applications of such a device are many and mind blowing.
Eg in the case of a type 1 diabetic, it can automatically measure blood sugar and automatically produce insulin. The patient can get such a device implanted and do no longer need to take care of the disease. The progress can be monitored on a smartphone.
Other potential application are in the area of fitness, programmable drugs, tissue engineering and renewal, metabolic engineering, endocrine disorders (like e.g. estrogen deficiency, and osteoporosis) control of the immune system, and treatment of diseases like cancer ( e.g. small-cell lung cancer, prostate cancer, cervical cancer, colorectal cancer). Moreover, one can use a biological microprocessor for biomedical experiments, disease diagnostic, drug screening and building biosensors for observing of the environment.
CytoComp`s computer assisted software (CAD) will enable you to custom design a biological microprocessor for your very specific purpose. We at CytoComp will build your microprocessor due to the specification made in the CAD. This microprocessor is able to take biological signals as an input and will have a biological regulator as an output. As the biological microprocessor can communicate with your smartphone, many potential applications can be developed.

About the Stanford University / coursera competition:
This crowd funding campaign is part of a competition organized by Stanford University / coursera for details see Stanford University, Startup Engineering by Balaji S. Srinivasan, Vijay S. Pande The Sartup, which raises the largest amount of bitcoins and has the most shares on Twitter will win the competition. The winning project will get special support form Stanford University in form of prizes sponsored by Counsyl, Judicata, Leap Transit, and Coinbase. This will help to push the CytoComp project to the next level of success. Thus, please donate and tweet and retweet the project as much as possible.
You can follow the status of the competition on the Leader Board
About the goal of this campaign:
We wish to generate public awareness about a mind blowing new technology, which will change the life of millions. The 100 Bitcoins raised in this campaign will be used for further development of the CAD software.
