electroactive bacteria

Our MCBF paper is out in Scientific Reports

Our paper, “PEDOT:PSS-based Multilayer Bacterial-Composite Films for Bioelectronics” is now out in Scientific Reports. This project started with a strange conversation over coffee with Moshe Baruch and Gábor Méhes at Lawrence Berkeley Labs’ Molecular Foundry. Gábor was here from Linkoping University, visiting Caroline Ajo-Franklin’s lab for several months, to work on getting Shewanella oneidensis to play with PEDOT:PSS. We ended up electropolymerizing the organic conductor around living bacteria to create a multilayer conductive bacterial-composite film (MCBF for short).
