Molecular Assembler

A molecular assembler assembles molecules when given a supply of smaller building-block atoms or molecules to work from. One type of molecule is a biological enzyme, which works within a cell's environment, and by reading strands of DNA and RNA, it assembles specific large protein molecules out of more fundamental parts.
