Phenotypic Heterogeneity and the Evolution of Bacterial Life Cycles

PLoS Computational Biology

Feb 20, 2016

Jordi van Gestel, M A Nowak

Abstract

Most bacteria live in colonies, where they often express different cell types. The ecological significance of these cell types and their evolutionary origin are often unknown. Here, we study the evolution of cell differentiation in the context of surface colonization. We particularly fo...read more
