Are your ribosomes in a twist?

How Vulpine Designs is addressing the cellular equivalent of compiler problems. Making proteins the right way can be a challenge Tracing the intracellular contraptions of life is essential to understanding how to debug our life code. Alas, without a software development kit, API, or even a manual--let alone easy-to-understand source code--we have to reverse-engineer the machine code of living things.
