Hello Willem. Hopefully you see this question tommorow! I was really interested in bacteria last year and learnt so many cool things. I saw Bonni Basslers TED talk on quorum sensing and tried to read much more about it but i either couldn't find much or it was too academic for me to understand. Its so fascinating to me. In your opinion how viable do you think anti-quorum sensing compounds can be as an alternative to antibiotics. Also is there any progress being made with phage therapy?

Thanks for replying! I read your response to phages as well which was informative. That's really cool she's coming over to give a talk. It's a shame that there haven't been any major developments you're aware of in anti quorum sensing approaches.
Also are most bacteria capable of QS? What's the most interesting example of it that you know of?
