Mogrify: A computer program that helps figure out how to turn any type of human cell into any other type of human cell without stem cells...

I'm not 100% sure I understand this, but it seems like it could be important. Basically Mogrify is a computer program that helps figure out how to turn any type of human cell into any other type of human cell, without the need for trial and error OR STEM CELLS (which are scarce partly due to religious objections). This could make it faster and easier to (for instance) turn your own cells into new organs. Also it sounds like many years of patient highly-skilled scientific labor in the lab were just blown out the airlock by software. This is how software eats the world.
Sounds as useful as CRISPR.
This could have many increasing returns if it works!
