Evolution of Microbial Market:
Bio microbial market has been used successfully to explain cooperative behavior in many animal species. Both with the hosts and other microbes, microbes will engage in cooperative behaviors and can be described in economic terms. However, a market approach is not traditionally used to analyze these interactions. Considering six economic strategies used by microbes to optimize their success in markets. This market theory can be helpful in structuring this potential by characterizing strategic investment of microbes across a diversity of conditions.
Biological market theory offers a potentially valuable framework for studying microbial cooperation among species. We predict that its primary contribution will be to generate new experimental questions and hypothesis in the field of social microbiology. Also, applying market theory to microbial mutualisms will be an important test of the robustness of market-based principles as a more general principle of social behavior. We identified six strategies microbes use or benefit from to optimize their success in markets. This list will no doubt grow as researchers uncover new ways in which microbes manipulate trade in their favor. They are very easy to alter, and will be useful for testing questions about biological markets in general. These include the evolution of partner choice, responses to price fluctuations, and identification of the market conditions that drive specialization vs. diversification, while simultaneously considering the biological context of exchange. In the current era of synthetic biology, a microbial market perspective can increase our understanding of the complex feedbacks among partners and inspire the engineering of novel interactions. Both will direct forward our knowledge and understanding of microbiology cooperation in general.
