Bacterial species are under continuous warfare with each other for access to nutrients. To gain an advantage in this struggle, they produce antibacterial compounds that target and kill their competitors. Different species of bacteria, including ones that live inside us, can battle each other for scarce resources using a variety of tactics. In our latest work, in collaboration with Dr Konstantinos Beis at the Research Complex at Harwell /Imperial College, London, we have uncovered the mechanism of one such tactic at work that may eventually lead to the development of new antibacterials. go to the Science advances article
