Abstract

Many bacterial strains exhibit beautiful branching patterns during colonial development. Much effort is devoted to the search for basic principles of self-organization (growth, communication, regulation and control) on the cellular and multi-cellular levels. Our approach is to use the successful conceptual framework for branching growth patterns in non-living systems as a tool to understand their significantly more complex biological counterparts.
