Blood Music by Greg Bear:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

A marvelous novel, expanded from the short story of the same name. Vergil Ulam is a frustrated biologist and geneticist working on biological computers - in a word, smart viruses and bacteria. When he is kicked out of his lab for working with recombinant DNA, he decides to take some of his work home. A classic cautionary tale about fooling with Mother Nature. Select an invention:

Biologics - organic computing

Intellectual Cell - cellular computing

Medically Applicable Biochip - a microarray
