Conventional supercomputers can perform amazing, almost unimaginably complex calculations – but they’re expensive, a huge power drain, they run incredibly hot, and tend to be about as big as your house (sometimes even bigger).

But what if there were a radically different approach to computing that didn’t rely on the technology of today’s digital circuits? That’s the thinking behind an amazing new biological supercomputer model developed by an international team of researchers, which uses proteins in place of electrons to relay information around a living microchip.
