Cultivation of an Obligate Fe(II)-Oxidizing Lithoautotrophic Bacterium Using Electrodes

Neutrophilic obligate Fe(II)-oxidizing bacteria (FeOB) are prevalent throughout the world in both marine and fresh- water environments, and these microbes play a direct role in the global iron cycle (1).

Synthetic biology: applications come of age

Synthetic biology is bringing together engineers and biologists to design and build novel biomolecular components, networks and pathways, and to use these constructs to rewire and reprogram organisms. These re-engineered organisms will change our lives over the coming years, leading to cheaper drugs, ‘green’ means to fuel our cars and targeted therapies for attacking ‘superbugs’...
