Abstract:
Although bacteria are unicellular organisms, they use a sophisticated mechanism to cooperate with other bacteria which allows them to carry out multicellular-like processes, such as swarming, biofilm formation, induce infections, luminescence, etc. This mechanism is known as quorum sensing (QS) and it functions through the individual release, diffusion and collective sensing of small molecules, called autoinducers, which under their accumulation lead to changes in gene regulation. A range of app...    »
