The study of the biont immune system, which defends the organism against the invasion of foreign substances, tissues, and organisms.
Includes understanding the way the immune system works, natural and bionano geneered immune system cells and the production of antibodies; augmenting the immune system; temporarily suppressing the immune system to allow transplanted bionics, augments, or new nano to take; and the development of immunization against natural and artificial diseases, foreign nanite infection, and so on.
Infection Strategy - Text by Glenn Grant Any memetic strategy that encourages infection of a host. Jokes encourage infection by being humorous, tunes by evoking various emotions, slogans and catch-phrases by being terse and continuously repeated. Transapient-initiated memes have incredibly subtle (to ordinary sapient) strategies, sometimes not even recognised as memes by their targets. There are also transingularitan (transapient) strategies that ordinary sapienst are immune to by virtue of their lack of receptivity (see replication strategy; mimicry).
Nanochondria - Text by Anders Sandberg in his Transhuman Terminology Hylonano or bionano devices existing inside living cells, participating in their biochemistry (like mitochondria) and/or assembling various structures. A type of nanosome.
