What’s That Science Thing: Bacteria Edition
This camera chip’s electrochemical imaging process is something like “taking a movie” over time, said Dr. Ken Shepard, a professor of electrical engineering and biomedical engineering and one of the researchers on the project. By recording the chemical activities of the bacteria, the researchers are able to learn more about the mechanisms that individual cells use to organize themselves into a community. Marshaling one billion individual P. aeruginosa cells into the colony formation pictured here, for instance, required a considerable amount of coordination on the part of the cells.
