Summary: Evolutionary arms race: Survival of the fittest, is it raw competition, a level of cooperation indispensable to life, or both? Explore our own spiraling arms race with microorganisms, the only real treat to our existence, and trace the alarming spread of resitance among pathogens that cause disease.
