For Whom the Cell Tolls: The Response of Bacterial Cell Growth and Division to Osmotic Shock
Learn about cell wall physiology and the processes that drive cell-wall expansion during cell growth in this research presented by Simbios Postdoctoral Fellow Enrique Rojas.
The cell wall is a universal feature of bacteria that determines their shape, their effect on the human immune system, and their susceptibility to many of our front-line antibiotics. Therefore, it is essential to understand this structure's physiology. In this video, Simbios postdoctoral fellow Dr. Enrique Rojas describes his experiments using single-cell, time-lapse microscopy and microfluidic-based cell culture to examine the fundamental biomechanical and biochemical processes that drive cell-wall expansion during cell growth.
