Christopher Voigt an MIT professor has worked with colleagues at Boston University to produce a paper which explains the programming language they have crated for bacteria. An EDA tool called CELLO has been produced which is Verilog based (the same language used for chip design and FPGAs). The resulting code is compiled and transformed into a DNA sequence which can be run inside a cell.

Future applications for this kind of programming include designing bacterial cells that can produce a cancer drug when they detect a tumor, or creating yeast cells that can halt their own fermentation process if too many toxic byproducts build up.
