Hitchhiking, collapse, and contingency in phage infections of migrating bacterial populations
The ISME journal, pp. 1-12, 2020.
Natural bacterial populations are subjected to constant predation pressure by bacteriophages. Bacteria use a variety of molecular mechanisms to defend themselves from phage predation. However, since phages are nonmotile, perhaps the simplest defense against phage is for bacteria to move faster than phages. In particular, chemotaxis, the a...More
