Session Title: Structure, Function and Biophysics of the Bacterial Motility and Flagellar Motor

Session Summary:Bacteria swim in liquid or swarm on solid surface to move toward their preferable environment for survival. For a long time, the flagellum is known to be a representative motility organ for bacteria: its unique mechanism "rotation" and energy conversion using ion-motive force have long captured the heart of biophysicists. Recent structural and biophysical advances have provided atomic structures and single molecule biophysical measurements making this the perfect time to discuss how this elaborate supramolecular machine functions in the membrane. Furthermore, motility machineries other than flagellum are now being discovered and characterized. Here in this session, we invite six front-runners of the field from all over the world to discuss and appreciate what is known now about bacterial motility and its associated machinery.
