Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Evolution in a test tube: these bacteria survive on deadly copper surfaces

(Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg) The descendants of regular wild-type bacteria can evolve to survive for a long time on metallic copper surfaces that would usually kill them within a few minutes. An international research team led by Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) and the Bundeswehr Institute of Microbiology was able to produce these tiny survivalists in the lab and has been able to study them more closely. The team reports on its findings in Applied and Environmental Microbiology.
