A huge technology base for molecular construction already exists . Tools
originally developed by biochemists and biotechnologists to deal with molecular
machines found in nature can be redirected to make new molecular machines .
These do most of the actual construction . The steps in the cycle — using a copy
to block the tube , beginning a fresh copy , then releasing the old one — illustrate
one way for a machine to build a copy of itself while floating in a liquid , yet ...
During tissue construction , whole cells move about , amoebalike : extending part
of themselves forward , attaching , pulling their material along , and letting go of
the former attachment site behind them . Individual cells contain a dynamic ...
