The search for eco-friendly energy sources have made scientists and researchers to harness energy from smaller living things which started with corn, then algae and now bacteria. By knowing, how to generate electricity from the M13 bacteriophage, basically a virus that infects bacteria, engineers have opened the doors to many futuristic inventions. Maybe the virus produces only a small amount of energy, but can be expanded and one day with that energy you might able to charge your phone while you walk or can power a vacuum cleaner. The technological advancement has led us to the path of ultimate bacterial power which can be used at many places. Let’s check […]
