Recruiting bacteria to be technology innovation partners
Boston MA (SPX) Sep 19, 2014
For most people biofilms conjure up images of slippery stones in a streambed and dirty drains. While there are plenty of "bad" biofilms around - they even cause pesky dental plaque and a host of other more serious medical problems - a team at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University sees biofilms as a robust new platform for designer nanomaterials that could clean up polluted rivers, manufacture pharmaceutical products, fabricate new textiles, and more. In sho ... read more
