- There are many strategies by which cell fates are decided. In one intriguing case, viruses communicate via the quorum-sensing-like ‘arbitrium’ system to bias infection outcomes. Through elucidating the detailed molecular mechanisms of such strategies, we can better understand viral propagation and offer insights into the treatment of viral diseases.
