One problem that comes to mind right away is: not only does one's
DNA contain all the genetic information about oneself, it also con-
tains the instructions for the mechanism which performs the dupli-
cation of the DNA.  So you had better not encrypt that part, or
none of your DNA will ever get replicated!      -- george at tessi.com
