Spatial organization of transcriptional control and c-di-GMP signaling in Escherichia coli biofilms

Öffentlicher Abendvortrag von Professorin Dr. Regine Hengge (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin) im Rahmen der Vortragsreihe „Molekulare Grundlagen des Lebens“ mit dem Schwerpunktthema „Molecular Interactions in Microbes”

An overarching theme of cellular regulation in bacteria arises from the trade-off between growth and stress resilience. In addition, the formation of biofilms contributes to stress survival, since these dense multicellular aggregates, in which cells are embedded in an extracellular matrix of self-produced polymers, represent a self-constructed protective and homeostatic ‚niche‘. As will be shown for the model bacterium E. coli, biofilm control is achieved by a highly integrated regulatory network that promotes either growth or stress resistance and organizes 3D multicellularity in a world of limited resources.

Regine Hengge studied Biology and obtained her doctorate at Universität Konstanz. After a post-doctoral phase at Princeton University (USA), she completed her Habilitation in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics at Universität Konstanz. She has been a Full Professor of Microbiology at Freie Universität Berlin (1998-2013) and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (since 2013). Regine Hengge received the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize and an ERC Advanced Investigator Grant. She is an elected member of Leopoldina, BBAW, EMBO and the American Academy of Microbiology.

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
