brettl writes "Question for a sci-fi story that would like to have some sci in the fiction. If an organ (or person) could be mapped at the molecular level, wouldn't the cost of nanofabricating an organ, a limb, or a person be equivalent to the cost of manufacturing any sort of organic product of equivalent mass (ie plastics)? Or would the complexity increase cost/time of manufacturing? Or would it not be possible at all? Would it be cheap? Also, opinions on how this would play out in reference to the current bioethics debate on cloning would be interesting. Thanks"
