Ted Talk (April 2009) Bonnie Bassler: The secret, social lives of bacteria

The great thing about TED talks is that they are designed to take information and show why it has profound implications. This marriage of data and eureka, leads to the entertaining and engaging speeches TED is known for.

"Bonnie Bassler discovered that bacteria "talk" to each other, using a chemical language that lets them coordinate defense and mount attacks. The find has stunning implications for medicine, industry -- and our understanding of ourselves."
