Trade-Offs in Competition and Cooperation Ensure Microbial Coexistence in Superfood Kefir

Scientists at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and Cambridge University use metabolomics, transcriptomics, and large-scale mapping of inter-species interactions to show microorganisms poorly suited for milk emerge as the dominant species through metabolic cooperation and the uneven partitioning of microbial communities between the milk and grain components in kefir.
