CEE Professor Ferdi Hellweger and his colleagues recently advocated a new strategy for microbial modeling in an opinion paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. This emerging approach focuses on modeling individual microbes, paying close attention to the diversity of genetically identical bacterial cells, and questions the validity of population models which have history assumed bacterial cells were all the same. Prof. Hellweger and his colleagues believe this is the forward progress essential to fully understanding microbial systems.
