Artificial life and biomimetic nanotechnology

Last week’s New Scientist contained an article on the prospects for creating a crude version of artificial life, based mainly on the proposals of Steen Rasmussen’s Protocell project at Los Alamos. Creating a self-replicating system with a metabolism, capable of interacting with its environment and evolving, would be a big step towards a truly radical nanotechnology, as well as giving us a lot of insight into how our form of life might have begun.
