PICS Colloquium: “Swarming bacteria as novel active biomaterials – insights into the collective mechanics, particle transport and morphological adaptation in swarming bacteria from in-silico experiments”

December 4 at 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Zoom – email Katherine Thompson

Abstract: Flagellated and motile bacteria, in isolation or in coexistence with fungi, are implicated in about two-thirds of human infections. During infection, and generally even in relatively benign situations, bacteria may colonize surfaces via a process called swarming – a form of rapid translocation associated with changes in cell phenotype.  As swarmer cells move rapidly, they interact […]
