life-cycle is much simpler than we envision even for bacteria. The Mayo
results, if I recall correctly, essentially said that the only opening in the
"coral" structure was against the petri dish glass itself. Perhaps by the
time it's completed, they are simply sealed in and die.

proteins, which means they are probably vulnerable to various immune system
functions which target specific proteins. I believe I saw some results where
part of the verification of their lifeworthiness was that they seemed to grow
less when exposed to some agent which is also known to retard the growth of
Being organic life forms of /some/ kind, of course there must be conditions
which encourage or retard their activity.

anything like technology we have today. Of course they CAN be trained, in the
sense that with enough technology you can accomplish pretty much anything
which could ever occur "naturally".
Setting aside the fact that anything humans do is, of course, really a part
of nature, too.
It seems likely that, if nanobacteria are pivotal to the calcification of
teeth, then there must be cues which tell them where and when to act/live.
These can probably be replicated or exploited to cause them to calcify (or
otherwise help) where we wish.

and soldiers should die because tony blair is a crap leader... i am sorry KAZ but i do not agree.. we learn because we can. we design for th task, we evolveMessage 65 of 65 , Dec 29 1:10 PMView Sourceand soldiers should die because tony blair is a crap
i am sorry KAZ but i do not agree.. we learn because
we can. we design for th task, we evolve not destroy..
survival is the end game for production, betterment
such for study..
u always jump to say i am anti-tech etc.. i am one of
nanos best / better allies.. we dont want gm trees, we
dont need them,,, there are plenty of reasons, mostly
concerning pure science/ best practice and integrity
within th natural world..
i am suprised to find pro-gm tree support on a nano
list, cos i thought it meant you were clever and
future designery types, not a bunch of rank closing
sales b***h**.. gm crops lose money and damage th
env.. is that good for science? commercial or pure?
wake up KAZ.. there is a beautiful future of
potential.. we can also lose everything much easier
than you seem to think..
