Blue Waters simulates bacteria’s response to environment

A new study led by research from University of Illinois physics professor Klaus Schulten offers atomic-level details of the molecular machinery that allows swimming bacteria to sense their environment and change direction when needed. The receptors on the surface of a bacterial cell detect light, chemicals, edible things and poisonous things, and transmit that information to a deeper layer of proteins, called kinases, which interpret this...
