Fluorescent E. coli bacteria

ID Number

Bioengineers were able to coax bacteria to blink in unison on microfluidic chips. They called each blinking bacterial colony a biopixel. Thousands of fluorescent E. coli bacteria, shown here, make up a biopixel. See also entries 3265-3267. From a UC San Diego news release, "Researchers create living 'neon signs' composed of millions of glowing bacteria."
