New potentials for development of molecular bioengineering using cellular machines, especially:
(i) construction and function of lipid membranes as well as associated membrane proteins (pores, triggered channels, pumps, carrier),
(ii) molecular activities of the energy transformation, interaction and folding of protein structures,
(iv) construction and function of DNA and associated proteins,
(v) molecular mechanisms of signal transduction and protein degradation,
(vi) classification and function of viruses,
(vii) structure and dynamic of different filament systems of the cytoskeleton, and
(viii) motor proteins of the cytoskeleton as high efficient energy transformers.
