I will discuss recent experiments and theory for the growth of bacterial colonies. The growth dynamics may depend on a many different parameters like choice of substrate, access to nutrients, age and size of the colony, etc. I will focus on some experimental observations about pattern formation and discuss model approaches to analyze colony growth.
