Are there any QS researchers in Columbia that you are aware of?
Do you know of any, or are you interested in any applications of quorum sensing to political science?
US Mircobics holds patents on microbes that eat oil. Is there any thinking about applying your work to address the Gulf oil spill?
We are not aware of any at this time. However, the University of Nottingham maintains links to many QS researchers around the world. I suggest you visit their site at: http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/quorum/
