Cyanobacteria transform solar energy into chemical energy through photosynthesis. Once modified by plasmid transformation, they will be able to use this chemical energy to establish electric potentials across their membranes. This project aims to design a plate, based off the extracellular organization of Electrophorus electricus, that will be able to harness this stored energy.
