Physicists and biologists investigate how Xylella fastidiosa bacteria assemble into biofilms. In the video produced by Pesquisa Fapesp, physicists Mônica Cotta and Carlos Lenz Cesar from the University of Campinas (Unicamp), and biologist Alessandra de Souza, researcher at the Sylvio Moreira Citriculture Center of the Campinas Institute of Agronomy (IAC), revisit the collaborative process leading to the description of this biofilm. The disease it causes endangers plants of economic importance, such as orange and olive trees.
