Science: Modifying power of eels

From Nine To Noon, 11:48 am on 13 December 2023

Science correspondent Dr Siouxsie Wiles joins Kathryn to talk about how electric eels may genetically modify organisms in their environment (there's a neat video available here), researchers have developed a wearable biosensor that detects fertility hormones in sweat and birds in Europe have been building nests using anti-bird spikes.

Associate Professor Dr Siouxsie Wiles is the head of Bioluminescent Superbugs Lab at the University of Auckland.
