Fascinating use of miniature “built environments” to study bacterial quorum sensing

There is a fascinating article by Richard Grant at F1000: Lobster-Pot Science – The Scientist – Magazine of the Life Sciences.  It is about how two researchers at U. T Austin came together to study bacterial communication in miniature built structures.   I am a bit overwhelmed with prepping for a meeting I have tomorrow so do not have time to write a lot about this but definitely check out the article.

Plus the article is in mBIO the new open access journals from ASM: Probing Prokaryotic Social Behaviors with Bacterial “Lobster Traps”.
