Our latest pre-print is now available. We report on theoretical work by Shota Shibasaki, where he developed a model to explore public goods games in bioremediation of a toxic compound. The study shows that cheats that do not contribute to the public good can lead to system collapse, but by carefully controlling the system’s evolutionary dynamics, one can maximize detoxification efficiency.
