Issue cover
Cover: Pseudomonas aeruginosa, an opportunistic bacterial pathogen, can produce large amounts of filamentous bacteriophage during growth as a biofilm. Filamentous bacteriophage produced by P. aeruginosa interact with host and microbial polymers to assemble liquid crystals. When the biofilm matrix is organized into a liquid crystalline structure, desiccation survival and antibiotic tolerance are promoted. Pictured, fluorescently labeled filamentous bacteriophage (yellow) spontaneously assemble liquid crystalline networks in the presence of the host polymer hyaluronan.
