Bacterial metallic nanowires or nanoparticles synthesized from bacterial metabolism are garnering considerable attention because of their high potential for use in various future applications. Recent research generated a wealth of new scientific and technological results that clearly demonstrated bacterial capabilities of producing conductive nanomaterials. We explore this bacterial biosynthetic ability for use in bottom-up manufacturing techniques. Several methods are investigated for fabricating flexible electronic circuits on paper or textile device substrates. The circuits are formed from metallic nanomaterials that are biosynthesized during the bacterial metabolism.
