JD publishes on autonomously responsive pumping by bacterial flagella

JD has published a paper on using the polymorphic transformations of bacterial flagella to create a flagellar forest which can change pumping directions autonomously in response to environmental cues.  This work was inspired by our collaboration with MinJun Kim’s group at Southern Methodist University.
