A nuclear transmutation occurring in a living organism.


Only few studies have supported that biological transmutation does occur. One example is a recent study that had converted nuclear waste into non-radioactive elements through microbiological cultures. However, some critics are still in doubt if it does occur due to few studies supporting it.
