    Martin Ackermann
    Division of Biological Sciences, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, California 92093, USA
    Curr Biol 14:R73-4. 2004
    ..How can cooperation thrive in a selfish world? Recent evolution experiments show how bacteria themselves can generate conditions that make cooperation a winning strategy. At least in the short term...
  3. pmc On the evolutionary origin of aging
    Martin Ackermann
    Institute of Integrative Biology, ETHZ, 8092 Zurich, Switzerland
    Aging Cell 6:235-44. 2007
    ..Aging might thus be a more fundamental aspect of cellular organisms than assumed so far...
  4. pmc Experimental evolution of aging in a bacterium
    Martin Ackermann
    Institute of Integrative Biology, ETH Zurich, CH 8092 Zurich, Switzerland
    BMC Evol Biol 7:126. 2007
    ..We tested the generality of this theory by experimental evolution with Caulobacter crescentus, a bacterium whose asymmetric division allows mother and daughter to be distinguished...

    Martin Ackermann
    Division of Biological Sciences, University of California, San Diego, California 92093, USA
    Evolution 58:2599-612. 2004
    ..These results refine the conditions for adaptive diversification due to competition and formulate them in a way that might be more amenable for experimental investigations...

    Martin Ackermann
    Institute of Integrative Biology, ETH Zurich, Switzerland
    Biotechniques 44:564-7. 2008
    ..This indicates that aging is a more fundamental property of organisms than was previously assumed. Bacteria can now be used as very simple model system for investigating why and how organisms age...
