Our paper on emergence of complementary resource preferences in diauxic microbial communities is published in Nature Communications!

See IGB press release.

We studied population dynamics (Nat Comm 2021 Nov) in a community of microbes sequentially utilizing resources (diauxie) in the order determined by each species regulatory network. Such communities realized both in serial dilution experiments, as well as in naturally occurring boom-and-bust cycles (e.g., in the upper ocean microbiome of temperate regions).
