like robot wars/ gladiators but with antibiotic resistant microbes
The antibiotic resistant microbes battle to the death with other
microbes in televised encounters in petri-dishes. A jokey, tongue-
cheek commentator narrates, fills in during occasional lulls in the
action. Meanwhile new antibiotics evolve. Hopefully
There might be tiny castles built of

The Evolution of Bacteria on a Mega-Plate Petri Dish
I recently saw a talk by the leader of this group, it was really fun. [Loris, Apr 10 2017]
||Well, there are all kinds of interesting dynamics between bacterial colonies. But to follow them, you'd really want to be point-sampling and sequencing to see which bugs had recently evolved a better resistance gene, or how their quorum sensing apparatus* has adapted.
