Although fungal bioluminescence has been reported since ancient times, the chemical pathways involved in light emission as well as the identity of the emitter and its biological function(s) remain unsolved. Likewise firefly bioluminescence, whose elucidation harnessed the development of several ...Read More

The workhorse of the microbe world could turn out to be Geobacter, a hairy looking organism that is actually capable of generating an electric current from mud or wastewater.  Professor Derek Lovley and a team of researchers at the University ...Read More
