Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper focusses on intra- and inter-species connections between diatoms; hard bioglass microalgae that adhere through the secretion of sticky extracellular polymeric substances (EPS). We identify entirely new diatom attachment mechanisms, and the associated structures that develop from them. Further, we consider these findings in light of potential strategies for the self-assembled manufacture of micro-bio machine parts, and discuss their possible first-order end uses.
