current brainstorming (12 march 2010):

-Food: loose weight consumes fat and chlorestorial

-Biodegradable fabric: good & green

-Fertilizing Gounds: cactus, nitrogen fixing compatible to all plants

-Bacteria -> Colon Cancer DETECTION

-Laundry machine -> encymes producing bacteria for washing machines


-biological Anti freeze so it can detect temperature change and unfreeze for example the car window.

-Bacteria to reduce air pollution

-Use bacteria as a memory/harddisk ->Computer by Bacteria

-Oil spill responce - Baceria cleaning it up.

-Detecting clusters of bacteria

-Synthetic biomolecules on synthetic biomolecules

-Magnetic bacteria-two bacteria spin around each other and create a magnetic field,which we can measure(*)

-bacteria changing the taste of yogurt

-making a bacterial community( to mimic the interaction between bacteia in real world)

-biocamera( there are bacteria which sensitivi different kind of signal, when they are exposed, they are giving a shape on the medium (take pic!)

-UV detected bacteria

-bacteria that has a capable of altering one type of aa to another or producing essential amino acid

-biofilm color

-ameube tron

-restore gulf stream pump once it breakes down

-anti-rust bacteria

-anti-anxiety bacteria

-anti-acidification bacteria for ocean

-maleria repelling bacteria

-smelling (coffee) of circadian rythm bacteria

-timer bacteria

-spore eating bacteria

-detect bad milk bacteria

-biofilm insulating bacteria (bacteria cover the building)

-two component gene made by bacteria stolling factor

-vitamine rich food , nice tasting food

IGEM Meeting(15.03.2010)

-anti-hangover bacteria

-quit smoking bacteria

-plactic degrading bacteria(microplastic degrading bacteria)

-caffeine producing bacteria

-gas transporter bacteria

-filter bacteria

-bacteria against the skin disease


-melanin production stimulating baceria

-carbon tubes producing bacteria

-flying and ozone producing bacteria

-to detect alcohol ratio by using yeast(it digests the sugar)

-seismo detecting bacteria(sound detecting bacteria)

-keyboard( pressure sensitive bacteria)

-glitter bacteria

-sparkling bacteria

-caffeine biobrick

-cake degrading bacteria

- Anti-body binding bacteria: for numerous functions, targeted that is

@Home idea: -Make bacteria produce a certain compound (like a pigment) which you'll want to apply to a surface of some sort. Let them first produce it cytosolic and then let them secrete it by a light sensitive channel. These channels are the MscL (Mechanoselective channels of Large conductance) and have been modified to be light and pH sensitive in stead (A. Koçer, 2007). I think we can use this mechanism for several for our ideas (e.g. biofilm paint).
