E. chromi and synthetic biology

E. chromi from Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg on Vimeo.

If you didn't think science was cool yet, watch this video (the whole thing).
E. chromi is a super sweet project that "genetically engineering bacteria to secrete a variety of coloured pigments, visible to the naked eye." I know that doesn't sound so cool at first, but when you see the pink and purple poo, trust me, you'll wish you'd become a scientist.
