New breakthrough at MIT Web Link

"Viruses have been used to help build batteries that may one day power cars and all types of electronic devices.-----
Professor Angela Belcher, who led the research team, said: "Our material is powerful enough to be able to be used in a car battery."

The team from MIT in the US is now working on higher power batteries. "
