Australian researchers engineer bacteria to make electricity from air

Researchers at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Australia have successfully engineered protein filaments produced by bacteria so that they can conduct electricity and even harness it using moisture from the air. This interdisciplinary research, comprising protein engineering and nanoelectronics, could one day help scientists develop ‘green electronics,’ a university press release said.
