Computers of the past - and the future
In 1954, Weizmann Institute of Science researchers built Israel’s first computer—one of the first in the world. Recently, an Institute scientist created a DNA-based biological computer so tiny that a trillion can fit in a drop of water.
Science that changes the face of disability
Imagine science that helps people who are paralyzed to get around and locked-in patients communicate - all by sniffing.

Beginning in the 1970s, a Weizmann mathematician and two colleagues at MIT developed several methods of encrypting and decrypting information. In addition to laying the foundation of internet security, this technology led to “smart cards” and is today used in global financial and governmental communications.
