I was talking about Conservation of Matter in a plant bio. course for
non-majors and made the point that equations always need to be balanced.  One
bright student pointed out that E=mc2 suggests matter can sometimes be
converted to energy.

My question: Are there any biology applications to this equation?  Or is this
equation irrelevant to biologists?
