Abstract

Many infectious diseases involve polymicrobial infections, which are characterized by synergistic interactions between different microorganisms colonizing a host. In this issue of Cell Host & Microbe, Keogh et al. (2016) show that Enterococcus faecalis promotes Escherichia coli biofilm formation in low-iron conditions, thus facilitating polymicrobial growth.
