« Gleanings Genome Synthesized by Scientists. So What? | Main | Talmudic Question #28 »

We have operated a biofilm reacor for extended periods. From it myhxobacteria as well as social ameoba were isolated. Both cause E. coli on agar plates to turn into healthily growing filaments. Back on clean plates E.coli reverts back to a non filamentous mutant. So E.coli might in nature be more frequently growing as filaments?

I would not mind collaborating on this by producing a paper with an interested microbiologist.
