    A High-throughput Interbacterial Competition Platform
    Authors:  Hsiao-Han Lin and Erh-Min Lai, date: 09/05/2020, view: 2118, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Contact-dependent interbacterial competition is a common strategy used by bacteria to fight for their ecological niches. Interbacterial competition is monitored by a competition assay involving co-culturing the attacker and the recipient bacterial cells on agar, followed by recovery of the surviving recipient cells. Conventional interbacterial ...
    Bacterial Competition Assay Based on Extracellular D-amino Acid Production
    Authors:  Laura Alvarez and Felipe Cava, date: 04/05/2018, view: 6188, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Bacteria live in polymicrobial communities under tough competition. To persist in a specific niche many species produce toxic extracellular effectors as a strategy to interfere with the growth of nearby microbes. One of such effectors are the non-canonical D-amino acids. Here we describe a method to test the effect of D-amino acid production in ...
