Microbes Act As Tiny Electric Generators

Scientists from the University of Massachusetts have discovered a tiny biological structure that is electrically conductive, which could help clean up groundwater and produce electricity from renewable resources. Writing in Nature, microbiologist Derek R. Lovley’s research team found that the conductive structures, known as “microbial nanowires,” are produced by a microorganism known as Geobacter . […]
