Abstract/OtherAbstract:
SIGNIFICANCE AND IMPACT OF THE STUDY: The results we present here are at the core of a larger synthetic biology research effort aiming at establishing a dialogue with bacteria. The framework is to convert the human voice into electric pulses, these into light pulses exciting bacterial fluorescent proteins, and convert light-emission back into electric pulses, which will be finally transformed into synthetic voice messages. We report here the first results of the project, in the form of light-based determination of key parameters for bacterial comfort. The ultimate goal of this strategy is to combine different engineered populations to have a combined feedback from the pool.
