Data from: Cutting through the complexity of cell collectives

Carey D. Nadell, Vanni Bucci, Knut Drescher, Simon A. Levin, Bonnie L. Bassler & Joao B. Xavier
Via strength in numbers, groups of cells can influence their environments in ways that individual cells cannot. Large-scale structural patterns and collective functions underpinning virulence, tumour growth and bacterial biofilm formation are emergent properties of coupled physical and biological processes within cell groups. Owing to the abundance of factors influencing cell group behaviour, deriving general principles about them is a daunting challenge. We argue that combining mechanistic theory with theoretical ecology and evolution provides a...
