It has been postulated since Darwin that competition is often most intense between closely related species, and we hypothesise that this competition has been a driving factor in the evolution of a diverse range of biosynthetic gene clusters in streptomycetes. We hypothesise that competition between closely related genotypes will lead to the upregulation of previously silent biosynthetic gene clusters, potentially leading to the exploitation of previously untapped antimicrobial compounds.
