Bacterialectricity: pulling power from proteins

The protein structure that enables bacterial cells to transfer electrical charge has been discovered, potentially opening the door to a novel method of electricity generation. The development will allow researchers to begin “tethering” bacteria directly to electrodes, creating efficient “bio batteries”.
