A classical paper describing experimentally the speciation of E. coli under constant and competitive conditions into 2 variants based on altered use of the resource glucose. Also useful to understand niche partitioning in experimental evolution using a glucose-limited chemostat.
Theoretical paper describing the arising of rate-yield trade offs from thermodynamic principles. Includes also the effect of the physical-chemical structure of the environment on the expression of a rate or yield phenotype.
One of the two original articles first describing the identification of complete ammonia-oxidizing (comammox) bacteria. For the second article, which was published in the same issue of Nature, see here.
