Metabolic competition as a driver of bacterial population structure

Abstract:

Understanding the processes whereby diversity arises and is maintained in pathogen populations is pivotal for designing disease control interventions. A particular problem is the maintenance of strain structure in bacterial pathogen populations despite frequent genetic exchange. Although several theoretical frameworks have been put forward to explain this widespread phenomenon, few have focussed on the role of genes encoding metabolic functions, despite an increasing recognition of their imp...
