By building synthetic bacteria that can be taken in pill form, DARPA-funded researchers seek to keep our digestive systems in fighting form.
A new project out of the UK called (wait for it) "Beach Bums" is looking to collect rectal swabs from surfers to research antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Cowabunga!
Combining beer with bacteria and the fermentation process creates the fibers that made this dress possible. You usually don't use the words "beer" and "fashion" in the same sentence, but this time, we'll make an exception.
On today's show, Khail and Ashley explain why you probably don't have to worry about Facebook's new drone project, check out some early April Fools' Day gags from Google and Samsung, and take a look at a dress made from beer and bacteria. #TDFooled
An MIT research team takes one of our biggest biological enemies and recruits it as an expert drug delivery bug in the fight against cancer.
Microscopic artwork shows off the beauty of bacteria and living cells using media such as cancer for artistic expression. And it's kind of gross, too.
This week on Crave we check out a light-based Rube Goldberg machine complete with melting ice, Godzilla gets the 8-bit treatment we have come to love, and the hit song "99 Red Balloons" is performed using red balloons. And also art made with cancer cells and bacteria...yummy! It's time for Crave!
An artist and a scientist team up to make striking patterns, self-portraits, and other paintings using a most unlikely medium, "tiny, tiny living things."
An MIT scientist and a Brazilian artist join forces to create a process that allows them to "paint" self-portraits and more using living cells.
A new study says the bugs growing in our digestive tract might steer us to choose the foods that are best for them, even if they're not best for us.
