2. Nanotechnology, Nanobiotechnology and Microsystems  
Nanobio and microsystems exist in nature in enormous variety. There is a need to understand, typify and utilize quantum and electrochemomechanical phenomena and effects. Single-cell E.coli bacteria exhibit extraordinary energy conversion, sensing and processing capabilities. An unified taxonomy in devising, discovering, synthesis and design of nano- and microsystems is centered on use of enabling organizations, topologies, phenomena and mechanisms observed in living organisms. These systems span from energy harvesting and energy conversion to quantum-mechanical sensing and information processing.
