Duke researchers develop 'swarmbot' strain that lowers risk of contamination in bacteria research

from Duke Chronicle

Duke researchers have engineered bacteria that cannot survive outside their colony, lowering the risk of contamination that normally accompanies genetically engineered microorganisms. One of the main risks of genetically manipulating organisms in a laboratory setting is the potential for the microorganism to escape from its regulated environment and multiply uncontrollably in the wild. Researchers at Duke have engineered a safeguard that would prevent microbes from surviving outside the confines of their enclosures. more
