This event has been postponed. We hope to arrange a new date for it in due course.
Bacteria are known to interact with each other via chemical signals, through what is known as quorum sensing.
We have recently reported the existence of a second means of communication between bacterial cells in dense populations, namely electrical signalling.
In this talk I will discuss the dynamical mechanism through which such electric signals lead to the spatiotemporal self-organisation of bacterial biofilms, at both the global and single-cell levels.
