But I am Legend isn't even about zombies.

I'm guessing you only know the title by the Will Smith version which is one of Hollywood's greatest canonical f---ups ever.

Fortunately, my friend wrote a book about zombies. And I have others on my Facebook that are gun nuts. I'm going to hang out with them.

Nonetheless, still pretty interesting to see where this ends up.

Wow someone did a fail on making that wiki.
Look a bit further down into the plot and it's about vampires created from a pandemic.

Anyways, These cells are really cool. From what I read in the article, if they DON'T heat the cells after infusing the silica, the cells can still perform reactions, and they're thinking the cells can even still function at higher pressures and temperatures. It's like super cell armor.

It seems to mummify the cells instantly, while the cell remains alive, yet fossilized.

after heating though, it destroys the cell and only leaves behind the silica, all the way down to its DNA!

and the method is ridiculously simple. just drop some silica acid on to them and that's it.

Yeah, that would have been bad. I'm glad they picked an interesting and exciting name for them. Your objection here with the scientists is seriously about what they chose to call these cells? Get over it. If one is stupid enough to get carried away by the mere use of the word zombie instead of actually finding out about the research, that's his/her own fault.

Yeah, the article may not even have made it on here if it wasn't for the word Zombie being thrown in.

Though, I see why they are being dubbed zombie cells.

After they cook them, the cells are functionally dead. But later on, the cells husks may be used to create a new sort of tool, injecting the husk with whatever it needs to perform its new task. In that sense, the cell would be a zombie. A dead cell given new life.
