Abstract

In this issue of Molecular Cell, Gutierrez et al. (2017) unravel a bacterial survival strategy that they term “density-dependent persistence” or DDP. The authors demonstrate that the majority of isogenic cells in bacterial populations survive lethal antibiotic doses once bacteria consume nutrients and enter stationary growth phase.
