Where would you begin, if you wanted to set up a panorama of "bio everything" today?
Just merely attempting it is enough to make one dizzy...

Biomimetics (or bionics or even biomimicry or...) is fast becoming, or so it seems, an established field in its own right. It can also be understood as phenotropics. And what about synthetic biology? Check one of their wikis, for instance.

Is this going to affect material production, as we know and practice it, right away? Perhaps.
