Title: Seafood Delicacy Makes Great Adhesive

Technology from Mother Nature is often hard to beat, so Idaho National Laboratory scientists, genetically analyzed the adhesive proteins produced by blue mussels, a seafood delicacy. After obtaining full-length DNA sequences encoding these proteins, reproducing Mother Nature's adhesives will revolutionize commercial production and use of adhesives.
