Nanotechnology and Mutation

Abstract:
Mike Treder: In another online venue, I was asked this question recently: Could radiation damage bring about random mutation of nanobots?

The answer I gave was: Yes and no.

Yes, radiation damage will occur. Is that a problem? Yes, it's a problem for the individual nanobot or nanosystem that is damaged or disabled.
