"Unraveling Bacterial Biofilm Development from the Outside In" by Julia Nepper
Wednesday, December 13, 2017
Bacteria are everywhere — in our guts, in the oceans, even on the International Space Station. Though we think of them as single-celled organisms, bacteria often unite to operate as a single community, known as a biofilm. Research on biofilms is only a few decades old, and there is still much left to learn. This presentation will address what we know now, then share information about some relatively recent developments on the function of the cellular envelope in biofilm formation.
