Team from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory sets out to generate piezoelectric power from the M13 virus, commonly found in science labs.
We love the sound of laptops that can be charged by your typing, thanks to a genetically engineered virus.
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory designs a benign virus that builds up electric charge, a new approach to motion-powered personal electronics and energy harvesting.
Researchers at UC Berkeley have turned a benign virus into a tool that assembles structures similar to collagen--a process that could be used to create complex tissues such as corneas and bones.
Rechargeable lithium ion batteries constructed by a genetically modified virus would have the same capacity as batteries used to power hybrid cars, MIT researchers say.
