"Streptomyces" bacteria are abundant in the soil and are best known for their complex life cycle and their ability to make a wide range of bioactive (specialized) metabolites. We recently discovered a new mode of growth termed ‘exploration’, in which "Streptomyces" colonies expand rapidly across solid surfaces. This new developmental trajectory raised many questions, including how this rapid...
