Mario made with genetically engineered bacteria


A team of nanobiology students from the University of Osaka made this beautiful fluorescent image of Mario using genetically engineered bacteria. It's one among a whole series of cool microbial art they created in a petri dish by manipulating proteins and pigments.

  1. Nice image. Now genetically engineer a roughly cube-shaped man who can jump six or eight times his own height.

  2. i hope soon this title will make everyone think about an actual, functioning, nanobiology – based version of the game.
