Out now: we reviewed the literature on ecological and evolutionary aspects of bacteria killing each other. With cool figures!
Our new paper now out in ISME!
A cool story on observing bacterial pathogens do their thing in see-through nematodes.
Our new paper is on bioRxiv!
Pathogens competing for worm guts, surprising results, and christmas-colored nematodes – this one’s got it all!
The Natural History Museum in Oxford is hosting an amazing exhibition on bacteria. Featuring a giant inflatable E. coli cell, a browser game on bacterial gladiators & several microscopy images from our group.

This October/November, 21 scientists from all over the world came together to give Twitter lectures on Microbiology, using the hashtag #EUROmicroMOOC. I contributed a lecture on Bacterial Cooperation, one of my favorite topics! These lectures are aimed at a general audience, and it was tons of fun to answer to questions live on Twitter.
Check out my lecture: EUROmicroMOOC- Bacterial Cooperation
Had a blast at the ISME17 conference in Leipzig (Germany) and came back wowed and inspired by all the amazing science!
Our new paper in ISME – now available online!
“Low spatial structure and selection against secreted virulence factors attenuates pathogenicity in Pseudomonas aeruginosa”
Our new paper is on bioRxiv! “Virulence evolution in the opportunistic bacterial pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa“
I wrote a short blog article on a fascinating seminar on vampire-like bacteria.
