The Reaction of Bacillus subtilis to Stress

Rosalie Dohmen


During the interview, the article that was discussed on why and how “Use of a microfluidic platform to uncover basic features of energy and environmental stress responses in individual cells of Bacillus subtilis” by Matthew Cabeen was written. He emphasized that this research could help scientist eventually figure out how and what stressors Bacillus subtilus had in order to do better job in killing the bacteria to prevent the eventual spread of it to people. Unlike people bacteria are very small meaning that when it encounters some type of stressor such as ethanol or acid, it has to respond in some type of way so it does not die.
