You might think that bacteria are mostly harmful.
That they are the foundations of disease, or make things dirty.
On the other hand, you might think of some useful things they do for us, like turn wheat into bread and beer (in case you think that, those are both actually the result of a fungus, not a bacteria).
What you probably don’t think about is bacteria being on the cutting edge of science and manufacturing.
However, as you can see in the video above (or by clicking here), scientists around the world are beginning to edit bacteria at the genetic level, enabling new chemistry and technologies which would previously have been impossible.
If you are interested in cutting-edge innovations, I recommend you check it out.
