How do microbes adapt to changing conditions?

Bob Planqué

VU Amsterdam

ABSTRACT: Microbes live in a world that constantly changes. Even if nutrient concentrations remain the same, they still continuously grow and divide, making themselves completely anew, often at breathtaking speed. In this short talk, I will highlight a new theory how microbial cells are able to cope with such situations, and will illustrate it with recent data on individual dividing cells.
