“Deinococcus radiodurans is a so-called extremophile bacterium that can survive intense bouts of heat and UV radiation that shatters its genome into hundreds of DNA fragments.
Without a genome, the microbe is effectively dead because it can’t synthesize the proteins necessary for life. In only a few hours, though, Deinococcus can reassemble its genome and return to life.” – LiveScience
Very cool, an in depth article that doesn’t go over your head.
I’m thinking The Terminator kind of application, that or some twisted Groundhog day!
