Multicellular Yeast Defeats Rotifer

I really like this movie Will Ratcliff made, showing one of the benefits of being multicellular.

The rotifer at the right easily consumes single-cell yeast, but our lab-evolved multicellular yeast was more than it could handle. See our open-access paper in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences for scientific details and the Travisano/Dean/Denison Microbial Population Biology website for more videos.

Mike Travisano and Will Ratcliff, principal investigator and super-postdoc, respectively, on the multicellularity project, will have a poster and talk at the upcoming Evolution Meetings in Ottawa.
