That opens the door to a lot of possibilities:
1. It explains what we need to tell adenoviruses to 'fix' in order to deliver a cure for cancer. Now for the hard part: we need to figure out how to do that without unwanted side effects by 'false matches' being replaced.
2. It means we know what to look for to get genetically modified bacteria that are used for the production of things like penecillin or various food additives to be more efficient at producing what we want: twiddle the 'overclock' codon. Maybe Monsanto will start agressively patenting these genes too, not just plant genes, in order to drive the pharma industry up the wall.
3. If we ever get far enough to use biological computers for general computing, we know how to overclock them. The only problem is that it's not something you can do at home – at least, not unless you are a genetic researcher and genetic virus builder / hacker.
4. Just wondering… but maybe this would also be the secret to building organisms (and possibly also people) who age slower because all their cells have slower metabolism.
More details, for those who understand biology as it's more technical than the average person likely can understand: http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2012-03/uoc–nlo032812.php
