Mapping quorum sensing onto neural networks to understand collective decision making in heterogeneous microbial communities
Microbial communities frequently communicate via quorum sensing (QS), where cells produce, secrete, and respond to a threshold level of an autoinducer (AI) molecule, thereby modulating gene expression. However, the biology of QS remains incompletely understood in heterogeneous communities, where variant bacterial strains possess distinct QS systems that produce chemically unique AIs. AI molecules bind to 'cognate' receptors, but also to 'non-cognate' receptors found in other strains, resultingdoi:10.1088/1478-3975/aa7c1e pmid:28656904 fatcat:vsp7lnewgrfr5eb4ytcacpl5km
