Scientists tweak genes to give bacteria electrical superpowers
The sticky bacterial mats called biofilms — the stuff that coats your teeth with plaque and help give Yellowstone's hot springs their crazy colors — are pretty impressive. Cells in the conglomerate can talk to one another and coordinate switching genes on and off, and the biofilm as a whole can quickly react to shifting environmental conditions.
