Abstract

Surface sensing is a fundamental yet poorly understood behavior of swimming bacteria. In this issue of Cell Host & Microbe, Laventie et al. (2019) describe a cyclic-di-GMP-dependent pathway used by the opportunistic pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa to respond to surface binding on a several second timescale.
