Data from: Interaction effects of cell diffusion, cell density and public goods properties on the evolution of cooperation in digital microbes

Akos Dobay, Homayoun C. Bagheri, Antonio Messina, Rolf Kümmerli & Daniel J. Rankin
Microbial cooperation typically consists in the sharing of secreted metabolites (referred to as public goods) within the community. Although public goods generally promote population growth, they are also vulnerable to exploitation by cheating mutants, which no longer contribute, but still benefit from the public goods produced by others. Although previous studies have identified a number of key factors that prevent the spreading of cheaters, little is known about how these factors interact and jointly shape...
