Much remains to be learned — and will be easy to learn with nanoscale tools —
but today's knowledge of cells is enough for a start on the problem of how to do
surgery on cells. Cell biology is a booming field, even today. Cells can be made
They will be able not only to remove viral genes, but to repair chemical and
radiation-caused damage to the cell's own genes. Advanced cell-surgery devices
would be able to repair cells almost regardless of their initial state of damage.
