Scientists Equip Bacteria With Custom Chemo-Navigational System

...esearchers equipped E. coli with a 'riboswitch,' a segment of RNA that changes shape when bound to certain small target molecules, which can then turn genes on or off. Dr. Gallivan and Topp believe that the riboswitch can be used to equip other types of self-propelled bacteria with 'chemo-navigation' systems...
