What will the bacterium do if it is entrusted to control the robot?
The transfer of information from bacteria to the robot’s actuating mechanisms was carried out due to the gene modification of bacteria, which allowed changing the color of their glow, depending on the nature of the food. The data were captured using a group of sensors and a miniature microscope.
The experiments were carried out after obtaining data on the behavior change during pairing of fruit flies under the influence of various bacteria. No less important were the conclusions about increasing the stress resistance of laboratory mice when administered probiotics. Research in this direction will help to better understand the influence of a person’s microbiome on his behavior, and also facilitate the development of methods for correcting his psycho-physical state.
