Biophysics of bacteria: linking cells to tissues
Juan （紀皇） will be given the bi-weekly “coloquio del Departamento de Fisica” @ PUC. In the colloquium, we will explore theoretical as well as experimental aspects related to the biophysics of bacteria. This emerging multidisciplinary field of research offers great opportunities for biologists and physicists at PUC to interact and learn from each other. To stimulate such meditation, I will briefly describe past and new research efforts being conducted at the keymer lab (http://lab.keymer.cl). Most of discussion will be around the issue of individual bacterial cell responses (chemotaxis, metabolism, division) and its linkage to metapopulation dynamics (aggregation, competition, cooperation) in spatially-distributed synthetic ecosystems.
