In nature, bacteria often engage in a range of collective behaviours, which coordinate activities of communities. In this presentation, I will demonstrate how two bacterial behaviours, swarming and biofilm formation, are unified by physical interactions, chemical signalling, and dynamical transitions. I will show how these collective behaviours arise from cell-cell interactions, and the physiological state of individual cells. Furthermore, I will introduce new experimental methods for investigating bacterial collective behaviours.
