Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Synthetic biologists redesign the way bacteria ‘talk’ to each other

Bioengineers have redesigned how harmless E. coli bacteria ''talk'' to each other. The new genetic circuit could become a useful new tool for synthetic biologists who, as a field, are looking for ways to better control the bacteria they engineer to perform all sorts of tasks, including drug delivery, bioproduction of valuable compounds, and environmental sensing.
