Cooperating Bacteria Mimic van Gogh to Migrate

Image Credit: Jordi van Gestel
Issue Image

In the bacterium Bacillus subtilis, cooperation between surfactin-producing and matrix-producing cells (artificially colored red and green, respectively, in the image) drives migration over solid surfaces by the formation of filamentous looped "van Gogh" bundles at the edge of the colony.
