Bacterial Speciation: Genetic Sweeps in Bacterial SpeciesCurrent Biology (2016)
One theory of bacterial speciation states that bacterial and animal species share the property of cohesion, meaning that diversity within a species is constrained. A new study provides direct evidence that genome-wide sweeps can limit diversity within bacterial species.
