Electricity-conducting bacteria yield secret to tiny batteries

Pollyanna Sidell - Associated Environmental Systems

ELECTRICITY-CONDUCTING-BACTERIA-SOILScientists have made a surprising discovery about how strange bacteria that live in soil and sediment can conduct electricity. The bacteria do so, the researchers determined, through a seamless biological structure never before seen in nature - a structure scientists can co-opt to miniaturize electronics, create powerful-yet-tiny batteries, build pacemakers without wires and develop a host of other medical advances.
