Mad Cow Clues

Abstract:
Could the same sort of thing that causes mad cow disease actually do something useful? As this ScienCentral News video reports, one scientist says this is the kind of impossible dream that nanotechnology can make come true. Protein molecules are the basic components of life. They have so many functions that many nanotechnologists are interested in harnessing them to make tiny machines.
