Physical perturbations are prevalent in the bacterial world. Changes in the environmental mechanical properties, temperature, pH, or osmotic pressure apply broad spectrum stresses to bacterial communities and drive evolution. Specifically, in the human gut, osmotic stress is a common disturbance caused by food intolerance, malabsorption, and widespread laxative use. In my postdoctoral studies, I a
