Unformatted text preview: expression would describe the time to change from an "off state" (no expression) to an "on state" (95% of the new steady-state level)? What would the half-time for switching be in the following two cases: a) cells rapidly growing (doubling time 30 minutes) and a stable protein (degradation half-tune one day); or b) cell not growing at all (infinite doubling time) and a protein with a degradation half-time of 1 hour? How do these switchmg times compare to those for silicon logic circuits? Would you invest in a company developing such cellular computers? Cite as: William Green, Ir., and K.
