An important quantum algorithm may actually be a property of Nature

Researchers at the University of Toulon in France found evidence that quantum Grover searches might be an ordinary feature of electron behavior may explain the genetic code, one of the greatest puzzles in biology.

The team focused on simulating the way a Grover search works for electrons exploring triangular and square grids, but they also included other physically realistic effects, such as defects in the grid in the form of holes, and quantum properties such as interference effects.

That has immediate implications for quantum computing, whereby experimentalist would bypass the need for a full-fledged scalable and error-correcting Quantum Computer. (MIT Technology Review)
