Evolutionary competition in microbial communities: from population dynamics to single-cell behavior

Abstract:

Microbial life in nature is typically associated with two distinctive features: (i) the formation of densely packed groups, mostly on surfaces, within which social interactions are rife, and (ii) mixing with multiple strains and species, which brings with it the potential for strong evolutionary conflict. However, most microbiology still rests upon the study of single genetic backgrounds, often in shaking flasks. There is a need then to better integrate the natural ecology and evolution of...
