  • Putting Bacteria to WorkExternal link

    07.20.18 Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Illinois at Chicago are finding new computational ways to describe bacterial cognition, a concept that emerged in the 1940s. These methods enable scientists to quantitatively measure how bacteria collect information, store that information and use it to interact with their environments.
