Animal magnetism

Using the tools of synthetic biology, researchers from HMS and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University have induced magnetism in a non-magnetic organism: yeast. Because the researchers used a common cell pathway, their findings, reported February 28 in PLOS Biology, suggest that such magnetism could be achieved in cells used for a variety of industrial, medical, and research applications.
