Mentions

Boeing is also still working with Collins Aerospace, one of its major subcontractors, to fix lingering issues with updates to the computers that control MCAS, the software that contributed to both crashes. Changes to the software have introduced new complications, such as the issue with the indicator light. Another irregularity, related to the software that monitors the plane as it powers up, is also being worked through.

Unlike in the world of pure software, you can’t “compile” and “run” genetic code instantaneously (if you want to use the metaphor that cells are like miniature biological computers operating off of DNA). There is lag time as researchers have to splice together different DNA parts and then insert them into host cells in a lab, where they can test them to see if they properly produce certain enzymes.
