Hitchhiking, collapse and contingency in phage infections of migrating bacterial populations
bioRxiv, pp. 378596-10, 2018.
Natural populations are subject to constant predation pressure by phages. Bacteria use a variety of well-studied molecular mechanisms to defend themselves from predation. However, since are non-motile, perhaps the simplest defense against would be for bacteria to outrun their predators. In particular, chemotaxis, the active migration ...More
