Bacteria Ride Bionic Mushrooms to Generate Electricity

Researchers in New Jersey have integrated microbes with nanomaterials to generate electricity via a mushroom, an advance in engineered symbiosis that could lead to designer bio-hybrid materials. The team at Stevens Institute of Technology achieved this by covering a white button mushroom with 3D-printed clusters of cyanobacteria that generate electricity and graphene nanoribbons that collect […] The post Mushroom hosts cyanobacteria to generate electricity appeared first on The Engineer.
