A bacterial change of scene: a story about membrane filtration.

At the start of my PhD I had an interesting discussion with my colleague Florian Beyer (co-author on this paper) about the ecological features of synthetic membranes. This discussion set the objective of this paper; understanding which physiological features bacteria require to colonize synthetic membranes. Our quest has uncovered valuable information that pinpoints bacterial weaknesses that could potentially be used to control membrane biofouling.
