Amoeba vs. Bacteria

Who will win the age-old fight of the microbes?

In the left corner, we have the microbial heavyweight fighter from North Carolina, the social amoeba Dictyostelium discoideum. It is not only equipped with pure cellular dominance and unappeasable hunger, but also has the ability to change its shape. In the right corner, we have the way smaller opponent, the bacterium Pseudomonas, a local fighter from the woodlands of Jena. Its special weapons are toxic tricks and fleet moves. Come and join the battle of these two rivals, which has been going on for aeons, and explore who will win the fight.
