A team of Columbia University professors has accomplished a state-of-the-art integration of computer circuit technology and biology. They have developed a chip that can listen to the communications of bacteria.
The integrated circuit chip is similar to the ones used in regular computers or smart phones and measures electrochemical signals the bacteria use to “talk to each other”.
