Abstract
Here, we present an unusual approach of modifying the growth pattern of electroactive bacteria for improving their communication with electrodes. Cells of a known exoelectrogen, Shewanella oneidensis MR-1, were treated with cisplatin, a drug that inhibits cell division but forces the cells to grow longer resulting in a characteristic elongated growth. Such elongated cells showed up to a 5-fold improvement in current densities compared to normal, untreated cells.
