Canadian scientists try to harness E. coli

Abstract:
If Shannon Lubitz has her way, having an E. coli infection could one day be a good thing. While the bacterium is today associated mostly with bad water, undercooked hamburgers and, well, intestinal distress, Lubitz is part of a team of scientists and technicians at Edmonton's newly opened National Institute for Nanotechnology that is trying to teach the nasty little critter to help instead of harm its human host.
