This study explores the feasibility of using model algal-bacterial co-cultures to develop an analytical tool to achieve a better understanding of how microorganisms interact with each other at the molecular level. Successful results would enable a potentially powerful tool with application to bioenergy, algal bioproducts and agriculture, and carbon capture.
