Microbial competition in porous environments can select against rapid biofilm growth

Abstract:

Microbes often live in dense communities called biofilms where competition between strains and species is fundamental to both evolution and community function. While biofilms are commonly found in soil-like porous environments, the study of microbial interactions has largely focused on biofilms growing on flat, planar surfaces. Here we use novel microfluidic experiments, mechanistic models, and game theory to study how porous media hydrodynamics can mediate competition between bacterial genot...
