Commentary
Bacteria are often described as unicellular organisms, but they are often
found in the wild and in the laboratory in highly organized structures
containing a large number of cells. These include macro-colonies and
biofilms that can display highly complex structures (Ben-Jacob et al. 2998,
Serra et al. 2013).
