SILIBACTS

Encapsulation of bacteria with biosilica for fabrication of bacterial bioreactors and biosensors

The aim of this project is the introduction of the technique of enzyme (silicatein)-catalyzed biosilica synthesis, developed and patented by the applicants, for the production of silica-encapsulated bacterial bioreactors/sensors (bacteria in a silica glass cage) for biotechnological applications.
