medical illustration of These cells are growing on a layer of spider silk, generated by genetically manipulated bacteria. This silk may be used for wound-treatment. The bio-compatibility of the silk is tested with cell cultures. Different surface treatment has effects to the adhesion of the cells on the silk.
