Eshel Ben-Jacob is definitely BioCurious. As a professor of physics specializing in complex systems at Tel-Aviv University, he has long been boundary-hopping between physics (pattern formation) and biology (bacteria). Here’s an example of the kind of work his lab has been doing:

To see more of these beautiful agar plates, head over here. While they are false-colour, the patterns formed are still amazing. A related page with some explanation as to how the variety of growth patterns observed form (other than Diffusion Limited Aggregation) can be found here.

    Dear Prof. Ben-Jacob, I found a particular colony variant of M.tuberculosis which resembles a fractal bacteria, and I would like to have an opinion from your experienced point of view on some pictutres that I got. If you have time to see that just tell me and I will send it to you.

    Looking forward for your reply

    Yours sincerely
