Environment constrains fitness advantages of division of labor in microbial consortia engineered for metabolite push or pull interactions

By R. Carlson and others at

Fitness benefits from division of labor in microbial consortia are well documented, but the dependency of the benefits on environmental context is poorly understood. Two synthetic Escherichia coli consortia were built to test the relationships between exchanged organic acid, local environment, and opportunity costs of different metabolic strategies. Opportunity costs... Show more
