Abstract

Researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, and the University of Texas created photographs using the bacterium E. coli. This achievement was made possible by genetically manipulating the bacterium, engineering in light-sensitive genes from algae. The news is the latest advance in synthetic biology. This paper discusses the new image acquisition model proposed, its implications on digital signal processing, the development of synthetic biology, and the societal controversy stirred by this discovery in particular and synthetic biology in general.
