Bacteria Compass
updated by Laura Cinti - 21 Mar 2012


This experiment is part of C-LAB's exploration with magnetic nanoparticles and living organisms, such as Nanomagnetic Plants and ongoing projects of nanomagnetic bacteria. In the video we demonstrate how magnetic nanoparticles can influence and control the orientation of E.coli bacteria. The bacteria used were genetically engineered with a red fluorescent expression construct to help visualise the influence of the particles.
