- Bacterial metapopulations in nanofabricated landscapes

It is clear that the physics of evolutionary dynamics, although related to the general problem of multidimensional energy landscapes with dynamic local minima, is more complex because the peaks are not necessarily stable to perturbation in density. By designing more complex (temporal and spatial) gradients, the directed evolution of microbial populations should be possible if collaborations between landscape ecologists and experimental (nanoscale) physicists increases further.
