Intelligent bacteria, bactodetectors, have been programmed to successfully detect disease.

Another step forward has just been taken in the area of synthetic biology. Research teams from Inserm, CNRS (French National Centre for Scientific Research), Montpellier Regional University Hospital and Stanford University, have transformed bacteria into ‘secret agents’ that can give warning of a disease based solely on the presence of characteristic molecules in the urine or blood. To perform this
