New Scientist reporter Andy Coghlan writes that MIT researchers have engineered bacteria to produce full-color, living photocopies. Coghlan explains that the technique could “enable finer control of the bacteria grown in fermenters to churn out vital drugs, antibodies and materials. Another application could be using light to sculpt living biomaterials, such as tissues and organs for transplant.”
