Biopolymer dynamics driven by helical flagella

Abstract:

Microbial flagellates typically inhabit complex suspensions of polymeric material which can impact the swimming speed of motile microbes, filter-feeding of sessile cells, and the generation of biofilms. There is currently a need to better understand how the fundamental dynamics of polymers near active cells or flagella impacts these various phenomena, in particular the hydrodynamic and steric influence of a rotating helical filament on suspended polymers. Our Stokesian dynamics simulations sh...
