Computer is  needed  to  generate the set  of electric impulses
which stimulate  not the elongation  of hyphae but branching  of
hyphae and   anastomosis  between  the   hyphaes  of   different
polarity. These "learning" impulses  are  a  stimulus  to create
the  "pseudoneural"  net  of  hyphaes  to accept the conditional
electric signal.

Sorry, the  discussions  about   the specificity of the media to
cultivate the bacteria is not a way to  a future. Most prominent
achievements  were    made  on   the  boundaries   between   the
sciences.The microbial biocomputer will be made on the  base  of
electrophysiology of microbial cells.There will be combined  the
computer ,electronic and biological sciences.

The free   and friendly  discussions in the bionet  promote  ,in
principle,  the  development of  new  ideas   and   microbiology
generally.

Best,
Vladimir Ivanov
