Printing Bugs

First there was the printing press, around 1452. Then, in 1799, there was lithographic printing. And now, in 2005, there’s bacterial printing. The new technique allows live bugs to be pressed onto solid surfaces at very precise distances from each other and in a variety of patterns. The aim is to explore how bacteria influence each other at various distances. Understanding how they operate will help efforts to develop new ways to thwart their attacks on the human body
