New Study Identifies Mechanism Bacteria Use to Attach to Surfaces
Science Magazine, 10.28.17
Understanding this mechanism of surface sensing in Caulobacter crescentus “might help us understand how other bacteria sense surfaces and control their growth, either to improve it in the case of good bacteria, used for instance in bioreactors, or curb it as in the case of hospital pathogens growing on medical catheters,” said Dr. Nicolas Biais, Assistant Professor of Biology at Brooklyn College and The Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY).
