Abstract

Complete dataset including all movies, supporting the manuscript entitled 'Painting with bacteria: Smart templated self assembly using motile bacteria':

External control of the swimming speed of ‘active particles’ can be used to self assemble designer structures in situ on the µm to mm scale. We demonstrate such reconfigurable templated active self assembly in a fluid environment using light powered strains of Escherichia coli. The physics and biology controlling the sharpness and formation speed of patterns is investigated using a bespoke fast-responding strain.
