The bacteria it contains, Escherichia coli (E. coli), have been genetically engineered to convert the naturally-occurring drug morphine into the painkiller hydromorphine. This is a simple, efficient and low maintenance way of making this drug. Photographed at the Institute of Biotechnology, Cambridge University, England.
