Influences of cell shape in microbial communities

Abstract:

By growing together in dense communities, microorganisms (microbes) have a huge impact on human life. Microbes also come in a wide variety of shapes, but we have yet to understand the importance of these shapes for community biology. How are multi- species communities, such as biofilms and colonies, affected by the morphologies of constituent cells? Which morphologies might these environments select for in turn? To address these questions, we use individual-based modelling to investigate t...
