Return of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

RealTechNews blog featured an article about bacterial photographs created by bio-engineered E. Coli that produce a black pigment when NOT exposed to light and vice versa.

This diabolical daguerrotype was made at a Longhorn lab in collaboration with Chris Voight's synthetic biology team from U. Cal San Francisco who created the photosensitive strain of bacteria.
