    • Bacteria Pattern Spontaneously on Periodic Nanostructure Arrays 

      Hochbaum, Allon I.; Aizenberg, Joanna (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2010)
      Surface-associated bacteria typically form self-organizing communities called biofilms. Spatial segregation is important for various bacterial processes associated with cellular and community development. Here, we demonstrate ...
    • Bootstrapped Biocatalysis: Biofilm-Derived Materials as Reversibly Functionalizable Multienzyme Surfaces 

      Nussbaumer, Martin G.; Nguyen, Peter Q; Tay, Pei K. R.; Naydich, Alexander; Hysi, Erisa; Botyanszki, Zsofia; Joshi, Neel S. (Wiley-Blackwell, 2017)
      Cell-free biocatalysis systems offer many benefits for chemical manufacturing, but their widespread applicability is hindered by high costs associated with enzyme purification, modification, and immobilization on solid ...
    • Water Reservoir Maintained by Cell Growth Fuels the Spreading of a Bacterial Swarm 

      Wu, Yilin; Berg, Howard Curtis (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2012)
      Flagellated bacteria can swim across moist surfaces within a thin layer of fluid, a means for surface colonization known as swarming. This fluid spreads with the swarm, but how it does so is unclear. We used micron-sized ...
