-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!)

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

@Home ideas (Maarten):

-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 and the detection of cancerous cells, which have a lower pH when compared to normal cells. The bacteria (for cancer in the GI tract) could then secrete some sort of detectable marker. Lipid bodies could be used for detection in the rest of the body.

-Bacteria that import vitamins or minerals and inject them into plant cells to make them more nutritional.
