The adenosine Triphosphate (Adenosine triphosphate, ATP) is the chemical compound that provides energy to all cells in the bodies of living beings. In addition, this substance may be what will ensure the future functioning of the "half-dead" biological supercomputers. This direction is engaged in an international group of scientists, led by Professor Dan Nicolau (Prof. Dan Nicolau), the head of the Department of Bioengineering McGill University. The group recently published an article in which describes the architecture model of a biological computer that can process information using multiple independent threads exactly the same as it is done in the bowels of the largest modern supercomputers.
