Wisconsin scientists find a way to make human collagen in the lab
...f nanotechnology, collagen has appeal as a type of nanowire
because it is thin -- thinner even than the vaunted carbon nanotubes hailed by nanotechnologists -- and long. Coated with gold or silver, human collagen could form the basis of implantable electric sensors. By attaching certain biological molecules ...

Researchers Discover That Microbes Can Produce Miniature Electrical Wires
...microbes to share energy in a mini-power grid. The nanowire
pili of individual Geobacter often intertwine, suggesting a strategy by which Geobacter might share electricity. Geobacter was discovered by Lovley in 1987 at the muddy bottom of the Potomac River in Washington D.C., and over the past 18 years his r...
