Anyone remember catalytic antibodies - from 20 years ago - which also promised rapid engineering of "enzymes" for specific reactions. They were made by immunizing an animal with a transition state analog - under the theory that stabilizing the transition state would speed up reactions (since that is what enzymes do). Well, these "abzymes" completely revolutionized enzymology and biotechnology.....oh, wait...

What this country needs is a good five cent microcomputer.
