Brief description Bacteria are ubiquitous on Earth and play key roles in nutrient cycles, biogeochemistry, pathogenesis, symbiosis and bioremediation among other processes. They continuously invade animals, plants and new habitats exhibiting complex behaviour. These behaviours are poorly understood in natural communities. This project will use a single-cell approach to develop a quantitative analysis of single-cell interactions to advance our understanding of complex bacterial behaviour fundamental to ecology, industry, technology and disease.
