To conduct experiments, researchers can change a variable in an organism and watch the results unfold. But life is messy, and its difficult to understand the underlying processes that explain the data. Digitizing the process could help, and now were starting small: researchers have successfully made a computer model of Mycoplasma genitalium, the worlds tiniest free-living bacterium…
