Alert Commander Data! Scientists bond DNA to artifical Surfaces!

Soon we will be able to graft human skin to Datas arm!

"BERKELEY, CA A new technique in which single strands of synthetic DNA are used to firmly fasten biological cells to non-biological surfaces has been developed by researchers with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the University of California at Berkeley. This technique holds promise for a wide variety of applications, including biosensors, drug-screening technologies, the growing of artificial tissues and the design of neural networks."

Isn't that how they made the superbowl footballs glow green? Well, I guess pig skin isn't artificial (if that's still what they use) but then again, who knows.

I wonder how they were able to overcome the signal decay?

This is why science must be stopped. I don't want to wake up a Borg one day.
