Bacteria need help finding a species to buy

Where would be a good place to get rare bacteria other than Carolina and atcc looking for the bacteria Geobacter sulfurreducens?

  • Electric producing bacteria
  • Do they not have what you're looking for or is there another reason you're looking elsewhere?
  • They don't have the specific bacteria

  • What is it you're intending on doing with Geobacter sulfurreducens? They are extremophiles (I.E. it will be difficult for you to maintain the proper environment) who as you can tell from the name, reduce sulfur and other compounds into what they need to survive.

    You mentioned something about them producing energy? I'll look into it, but off the top of my head if your objective is to generate energy this will be a very ineffective way of doing it as you'll likely put more electricity and money into providing an adequate environment than you'd get out of it.

  • To modify it to produce more electricity and adapt to more environments to make it more efficient in other environments.
