We created conceptual bacteria models.

The first diagram is the immuno-bacteria. Following it is the way it is used to clean water that has water borne-diseases and produce drinkable water.

As an introduction to all our efforts: Mit and what we are doing[[1]]

Something done: Bactoblood[[2]]

I am beginning to think about electricity conducting bacteria. There could several applications of these modified bacteria. I think starting from simply producing electricity, something that is been studied now, we could eventually create a micro-processor that is living and can adapt to meet system requirements. It would also power itself and make it independent of external power sources. As a third advantage, you could provide the bacteria the garbage in your house/environment.

An interesting article:Bacteria with wires[[3]].

Another interesting idea that I came across- makes use of the colour of bacteria to create high-definition 2-d surfaces. [[4]]

22nd MAY Sound and Bacteria: Interesting article that shows us something we didn't know was possible.[[5]]

27th MAY Finally, to understand what all the symbols mean, i found a catalogue that explains the DNA parts that we have to work with. This will allow us to understand what other igem groups have done in previous competitions. [[6]]
