We've recently published two papers:
First, Selina Niggli's first PhD project on interspecific interactions got published in Applied and Environmental Microbiology.
Chiara Rezzoagli's last PhD paper (with MSc student Martina Archetti) on antibiotics and antivirulence compounds was published in PLOS Biology.
Congratulations to all involved!
We have just released a new preprint! In this work, led by PhD student Selina Niggli, we looked at competitive interactions between two co-occurring human pathogens, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphyloccocus aureus, and the (a)biotic factors that shape these interactions.
We have just published a new preprint, an article lead by former group postdoc Santosh Sathe. In it, we look at how a "green-beard" cooperative mechanism is outdone by competition in the context of bacterial interspecific interactions.
Our review on bacterial social interactions in the context of infection, lead by former PhD student Dr. Chiara Rezzoagli, has just been published in the Journal of Medical Microbiology!
Over the last weeks, the group has published two papers:
First, our review on siderophore evolution, led by postdocs Jos Kramer and Özhan Özkaya, was published in Nature Reviews Microbiology.
Also, our study on the multidimensional social profile of Pseudomonas environmental isolates, came out in FEMS Microbiology Ecology This work was lead by postdoc Jos Kramer, and was co-authored by undergrad summer student (BUSS) Miguel López Carrasco, from the University of Málaga.
Santosh's paper on Burkolderia cenacopacia siderophores has been published in Evolution Letters. Congratulations Santosh!
We've just published an article in The ISME Journal!
In the first project of Chiara Rezzoagli's PhD, we looked at the importance of bacterial social traits when colonizing C. elegans gut, and if cooperation via these social traits when colonizing can be undermined by cheating.
This work was a collaboration with former PhD student Elisa Granato, and more information about it is available in this "Behind the Paper"!
After a fruitful collaboration with Sam Brown, Martin Ackermann and their teams, we've recently published an article where we look into how cost functions of cooperative traits lead to either individual or group-level optimization of public goods production.
Tobias Wechsler's MSc project was just published in the Journal of Evolutionary Biology. Here, we look at how policing evolves and influences public goods based cooperation. Another fruitful collaboration with Akos Dobay!
We have a new paper in Evolution, Medicine and Public Health!
This work was part of Chiara Rezzoagli's PhD project, and in it we tested if (and how) P. aeruginosa evolves resistance to two proposed antivirulence drugs.
