Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


On the surface, electrical engineering and the genetic engineering of bacteria may appear to be disparate fields with little in common. The former concerns the assembly of electronic components to build systems that sense and compute in the electrical domain. Bacterial genetic engineering, on the other hand, involves modifying the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) of bacterial cells to arrive at organisms that have new, altered behavior.
