Anaeromyxobacter dehalogenans is a species of bacteria.
In development or moral, political, and bioethical philosophy, autonomy is the capacity to make an informed, un-coerced decision.
The term cell growth is used in the contexts of biological cell development and cell division (reproduction).
In biology, a colony is composed of two or more conspecific individuals living in close association with, or connected to, one another.
In ecology, the competitive exclusion principle, sometimes referred to as Gause's law, is a proposition named for Georgy Gause that two species competing for the same limiting resource cannot coexist at constant population values.
Evolution is change in the heritable characteristics of biological populations over successive generations.
A gene knockout (abbreviation: KO) is a genetic technique in which one of an organism's genes is made inoperative ("knocked out" of the organism).
In biology, homology is the existence of shared ancestry between a pair of structures, or genes, in different taxa.
In biology, a mutation is the permanent alteration of the nucleotide sequence of the genome of an organism, virus, or extrachromosomal DNA or other genetic elements.
The myxobacteria ("slime bacteria") are a group of bacteria that predominantly live in the soil and feed on insoluble organic substances.
Myxococcus xanthus is a gram-negative, rod-shaped species of myxobacteria that exhibits various forms of self-organizing behavior as a response to environmental cues.
A nutrient is a substance used by an organism to survive, grow, and reproduce.
A phenotype is the composite of an organism's observable characteristics or traits, such as its morphology, development, biochemical or physiological properties, behavior, and products of behavior (such as a bird's nest).
In molecular genetics, a repressor is a DNA- or RNA-binding protein that inhibits the expression of one or more genes by binding to the operator or associated silencers.
RNA interference (RNAi) is a biological process in which RNA molecules inhibit gene expression or translation, by neutralizing targeted mRNA molecules.
Sorangium cellulosum is a soil-dwelling Gram-negative bacterium of the group myxobacteria.
In biology, a spore is a unit of sexual or asexual reproduction that may be adapted for dispersal and for survival, often for extended periods of time, in unfavourable conditions.
Starvation is a severe deficiency in caloric energy intake, below the level needed to maintain an organism's life.
Stigmatella aurantiaca is a member of myxobacteria, a group of gram-negative bacteria with a complex developmental life cycle.
Wild type (WT) refers to the phenotype of the typical form of a species as it occurs in nature.
