  • Bacterial Robotics is an evolutionary engineering firm
    Developing genetically enhanced organisms to solve problems and develop products.
  • Why We Do What We Do
    By using synthetic biology we can mimic what happens via Natural Selection. This biomimicry approach allows us to clean water, reduce disease, grow foods, provide non-polluting fuels, produce therapeutics, and develop new materials.
  • Solutions to Complex Problems
    BactoBots are protected from theft (cloning) and environmental release with a genetics rights management (GeRM™) system. If the consumable, non-polluting molecular keys are not present in the feedstock, the BactoBots self destruct starting with their DNA and RNA. As a result, the GeRM system is similar to the digital rights management (DRM) system found in the software and digital content industries.
  • Pilus Energy
    Our first subsidiary, Pilus Energy, is focused on delivering its bacterial robot to clean industrial customer “wastes” by transforming them into value. This waste-to-value proposition provides customers with substantial revenue-generating and cost-saving opportunities.
  • Auricle Solutions
    Auricle Solutions, a subsidiary of Bacterial Robotics, is a synthetic biology firm focused on developing the AuriBot™ for licensing to medical device firms. The AuriBot is being designed as a bacterial robot to augment, or replace, skull-based surgeries to eliminate cholesteatoma.

We are an evolutionary engineering firm. By programming bacteria using synthetic biology, we are producing bacterial robots, or BactoBots™. Our goal is to sustainably and profitably solve very big problems with extremely small BactoBots.
