I am deeply involved into genetics and molecular biology. I am planning to do a research on gene duplication on my own.

Well I was recently searching through the net to find any interesting topic on molecular biology, the topic was not directly concerned but it is great to read and understand.

St. Petersburg Times (http://www.newsfactor.com/perl/story/22123.html)

What do you think of it. It is long but interesting to read.

Eventually, the scientists aim to create self-sustaining computers that can be used, for instance, on deep-space voyages, to monitor and maintain the health of humans on board.

What does it mean by "self-sustain"?
Where does the energy come from? I mean the power? :blink:

The human body runs on electricity. Tapping into that field will give you a power source.
