preprint
submitted on 13.09.2018 and posted on 14.09.2018 by Shrikrishnan Sankaran, Judith Becker, Christoph Wittmann, Aránzazu del Campo
A living hydrogel has been developed with metabolically and optogenetically engineered E. coli encapsulated within an agarose-based hydrogel matrix to produce and release deoxyviolacein in response to blue light irradiation. Localized, tunable and prolonged drug release have been demonstrated.
