Pseudomonas bacteria Detect The Speed of Flowing Fluids

Pseudomonas bacteria can detect the speed (shear rate) of flow; regardless of the force suggests scientists. By linking the flow-detecting gene to one responsible for illumination; they have bio-engineered a real-time visual speedometer: The faster the flow, the brighter the glow. An all-Princeton research team has identified bacteria that can detect the speed of flowing…
