Progress report 13.06.05

RESULTS and FUTURE ACTIVITIES


FOTON experiments: growth curves

P. putida in FOTON medium (defined M9Glu medium supplemented with 20% LB medium) at 30°C (shaking); inoculum 106 cfu/ml.

Results similar for other bacteria


Scheme of the FOTON-experiment: different materials and species used


Planned experiments

The experiment from the FOTON flight will be replicated on Earth following the indications of the temperature data logger

Adhesion on material will be determined either by staining and microscopic analysis or by quantitative FISH; space and Earth samples will be compared

Fluorescence staining of a steel coupon colonized by P. putida


Adhesion by mixed bacterial communities

Experiments performed in the first part of the project point to synergistic biofilm formation by mixed bacterial populations


Setting up new (and old) methods to measure adhesion/biofilm formation

30°C

A new test: cell aggregation

Sedimentation due to cell aggregation

Reduced sedimentation in non-aggregative strains

(Experiment by E. Brombacher; protocol as in Simm et al., 2004)
