Quorum sensing is a type of decision-making process used by decentralized groups to coordinate behavior. Many species of bacteria use quorum sensing to coordinate their gene expression according to the local density of their population.The Bacterial Net attempts to transfer this decision making process over the Internet. Using Microcontollers and sensors to detect bacterial population and a public web service http://www.pachube.com that helps transfer sensor information. The Bacterial Net is an exploration in bringing the Internet into the Natural Ecosystem.
Integrating electronics into biological culture devices needs different approaches. the use of silicone-rubbers for sealing off the wet/humid bio-part from the silicon circuits and sensors allows the making of hybrid bioelectronic devices.
