Resistance is futile
When analysing the Borg genome, Banfield and colleagues also saw features suggesting that Borgs have assimilated genes from diverse sources, including the main Methanoperedens chromosome, Banfield says. This potential to ‘assimilate’ genes led her son to propose the name ‘Borg’ over Thanksgiving dinner in 2020. Source: Nature
Whose "Resistance is futile"? This subtitle of the article is not clear to me. From the context, it seems to say that the Borgs' power of assimilating other genes is so strong that resistance against it by the genes assimilated appears to be in vain/futile. I am not sure.
