Submission + - Problem-solving Bacteria Crack Sudoku (newscientist.com)

damn_registrars writes: "From the can-your-bugs-do-this dept:
A team of researchers from the University of Tokyo, Japan have developed a way to employ e coli bacteria towards solving a puzzle that many Americans struggle at — Sudoku. Current implementations can handle 4x4 grids, but a full 9x9 grid could be done with some additional modifications.
The TSA responded proactively by stating that no matter how much you may struggle with the Sudoku on the airline magazine, you are still not allowed to bring vials of bacteria on to the aircraft with you."
