Various bacterial strains exhibit colonial branching patterns during growth on poor substrates. These patterns reflect bacterial cooperative self-organization and cybernetic processes of communication, regulation and control employed during colonial development. One method of modeling is the continuous, or coupled reaction-diffusion approach, in which(More)
In nature, microorganisms must often cope with hostile environmental conditions. To do so they have developed sophisticated cooperative behavior and intricate communication capabilities, such as: direct cell-cell physical interactions via extra-membrane polymers, collective production of extracellular " wetting " fluid for movement on hard surfaces, long(More)
Various bacterial strains (e.g., strains belonging to the genera Bacillus, Paenibacillus, Serratia, and Salmonella) exhibit colonial branching patterns during growth on poor semisolid substrates. These patterns reflect the bacterial cooperative self-organization. A central part of the cooperation is the collective formation of a lubricant on top of the agar(More)
We study the eeect of discreteness on various models for patterning in bacterial colonies. In a bacterial colony with branching pattern, there are discrete entities { bacteria { which are only two order of magnitude smaller than the elements of the macroscopic pattern. We present two types of models. The rst is the Communicating Walkers model, a hybrid(More)
