‘Growing’ microchip circuits

The project focuses on creating smaller, cheaper and faster electronics, but appears to have more in common with biology than with wires or transistors. However, at the nanoscale where molecules are huge and millions of circuit elements dance on the head of a pin, the lines between electronics and biology easily blur.
