Biological Physics of Living Active Nematics

Project description

Insight into the physics of bacterial community formation

Bacterial cells constitute the simplest form of cellular life, but scientists have been unable to build theoretical models on how bacteria grow, especially in complex natural systems. The scope of the EU-funded BPLAN project is to develop novel experimental approaches to study the biological physics of bacteria colony morphogenesis. Results will help understand the early stages of bacterial community formation and the impact of environmental interactions on the transition to a 3D structure. Importantly, they will provide insight into the mechanism of antibiotics exposure, paving the way towards improved anti-microbial strategies.
