Mentions

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.
