An early example is the work of Wallace Carothers of Du Pont, who used a de
novo approach to studying the nature of proteins: Rather than trying to cut up
proteins, he tried to build up things starting with amino acids and other similar ...
There are two basic reasons for this: better materials and better quality control,
both achieved by molecular manufacturing. By using materials tens of times
stronger than steel, as Desert Rose did, it will be easy to make things that are ...
