Not all bacteria come to harm: some can even be used to fight cancer. Then, it might be helpful to monitor their activity in the organism: where are they? what are they doing? That is what we need to “ask” them. In a study published in Nature, scientists from California Institute of Technology realized bacteria equipped with miniaturized “sonar”. The genetically modified microorganisms look like “submarines”: yet they do not travel underwater, but in our body.
