  • Martínez Corral, Rosa; Liu, Jintao; Süel, Gürol M.; García Ojalvo, Jordi (National Academy of Sciences, 2018)
    Biofilm communities of Bacillus subtilis bacteria have recently been shown to exhibit collective growth-rate oscillations mediated by electrochemical signaling to cope with nutrient starvation. These oscillations emerge ...
