Modern Scientist Predictions James F. Danielli

About the predictions both right and wrong of modern scientist James F. Danielli including cells, organisms, and cell transplants.

Predictor: JAMES F. DANIELLI

James Danielli, Joan Lorch, and Kwang W. Heon--all at the State University of New York at Buffalo--were the first to synthesize an artificial cell. It was made up of the parts of three different amoebas--the outer shell of one, the nucleus of another, and the cytoplasm from still another. Their experiments in cell synthesis of this kind have been 70% successful; the "new" cells have lived and reproduced. Danielli is well aware of the dangers of this kind of experimentation and warns against the carelessness that might create a completely new killer virus or some other uncontrollable and dangerous mutant. Currently, Danielli is teaching at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts.

Past Predictions: No record.

Future Predictions: No Dates Given

* Sewage-eating organisms could be developed for quick conversion of wastes.

* A desalting organism, a kind of living machine which would use only sunlight as fuel in a process to remove salt from seawater, might be created.

* It might be possible, with cell transplants, to create a creature that would be part horse, part man. However, Danielli adds, "I can't see any reason for doing it, mind you."
