How Bacteria Talk

During my various bacteria-related rants and commentary, I occasionally mention that bacteria can communicate (called quorum sensing).

Here's a great TED Talk that does a fantastic job explaining what's going on in general terms. It also has a really cool bit about how one type of squid is sybmiotic with Vibrio fishceri for bioluminescence.

Bacterial communication is going on all the time in your aquarium!

The video talk was GREAT!!!! Made it very understandable.

TED talks are generally pretty awesome, regardless of the topic.
