No one had ever imagined life based on internal electric wires. Cable bacteria conduct electrons with an efficiency that physics and molecular biology so far can’t explain, and nothing is known on how they control their energy and growth metabolism, when the respiratory electron transport chain is split between cells centimeters apart.

Center for Electromicrobiology aims to unravel how this unique form of life functions.
