In the Paper a group studied various strains of E. coli using genomics, phenomics, transcriptomics, and genome-scale modeling.The highlight of this study is they checked the performance of E. coli strains under different conditions (Transcriptomic data GSE78756) which enhances understanding of optimization as well selection of strain suitable for use either for basic biology or for industrial use. The transcription factors, codon usage and global regulators rpoS also plays vital role in gene expression. Finally paper introduces a new star method format brought by Cell press.

Signals involved in biofilm formation are often studied from a mechanistic perspective, which emphasizes their population-level effects. By adopting an informational perspective of signaling, we highlight the overlooked possibility that secreted factors which coordinate biofilm formation and facilitate interspecies competition, may also facilitate competition within the biofilm. We would like to acknowledge the late Prof. Amotz Zahavi, an inspiring mentor who imparted numerous thought-provoking discussions bridging zoology, ecology and microbiology in this Environmental Microbiology mini review.
