Bacterial traffic jams, swarming and biofilm! New paper!!


A part of Iago's PhD project is now published in eLife. Huge congratulations, Iago!! It has been a fun and fruitful collaboration with Marco Polin(physics).

In this work, we investigated stress-induced transition from swarming to biofilm. We discovery a transition compatible with motility-induced phase separation underpins the initial stage of this transition.

And, here is a layman’s summary by eLife. Thanks to Emily Packer for writing this nice piece!
