Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Biologists do not routinely use quantum mechanics to describe inter-cellular interactions

Biologist may not, but it appears that evolution does. According to an article by a Cal Tech biologists, in order to achieve the efficiencies observe in photosynthesis the leaf cell has to be using a quantum computational method so as to find the optimal or near optimal path through the cell  for the energy of the photon utilized. I had a link to the article on the computer that was recently killed by lightning.
