Bacterial infection makes farmers out of amoebae

The farming amoebae had different genes than the non-farming amoebae. If farmer strains of amoebae were treated with antibiotics that killed the Burkholderia bacteria, they reverted to the non-farming type and no longer picked up or carried food bacteria. Surveying the bacteria found in association with their stable farmer clones, Scientist found both edible and inedible bacterial species, but the assemblage always included bacteria of the Burkholderia genus. This was intriguing because amoeba raised on a lawn of Burkholderia die; this is not a genus of bacteria they find edible.
