During an infection, bacterial pathogens can interact in a variety of ways, from cooperative sharing of resources to hostile competition. This review focuses on the relevance of these social interactions during opportunistic infections using the human pathogen P. aeruginosa as an example and shows how a deeper understanding of bacterial social dynamics can inspire new treatment approaches and improved, more sustainable infection management strategies.
