Diversity Takes Shape: Understanding the Mechanistic and Adaptive Basis of Bacterial Morphology

Abstract

The modern age of metagenomics has delivered unprecedented volumes of data describing the genetic and metabolic diversity of bacterial communities, but it has failed to provide information about coincident cellular morphologies. Much like metabolic and biosynthetic capabilities, morphology comprises a critical component of bacterial fitness, molded by… (More)
