Original post made by Sharon, Midtown, on Apr 2, 2009



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. "
