Benign Viruses Shine on the Silicon Assembly Line

Abstract:
Living organisms do a fine job of growing crystals, like the ones that make up abalone shells, for example. But there are lots of other inorganic materials, including those that make up semiconductors, that living things haven't gotten around to producing. Taking over where nature left off, the professor, Angela M. Belcher, has induced the virus to produce, at last count, roughly 30 inorganic materials with semiconducting or magnetic properties.
