UMCW06 - Microbial communities: current approaches and open challenges

The structure of bipartite networks (e.g. host-symbionts) are believed to be predictably affected by whether interactions are positive or negative, with greater connectance expected in the former. Antibiotics can change bacteria-plasmid interactions from negative to positive, suggesting antibiotics will increase how many different host taxa plasmids interact with, further exacerbating the spread of AMR . We combine theory, synthetic microbial communities and a survey of natural wastewater to investigate this.
