The BBC described the UC San Diego findings published this week in the journal Nature highlighting microbial "group blink" that could lead to new kinds of environmental sensors. The work is also a interesting step forward in the world of synthetic biology. A pair of bioengineering graduate students from the Jacobs School of Engineering worked on this project: Tal Danino and Octavio Mondragon.
