Some microorganisms communicate with each other in a group in order to protect themselves against antibiotics
Bacteria communicate with each other to escape antibiotics - short science news - microbiology

Little is known about how some pathogen bacteria, such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa, interact in a group in the presence of antibiotics. In a new research study, scientists discovered that these microorganisms communicate with each other, releasing distress signals when threatened by antibiotics. The chemical released is called alkyl hydroquinolone and it may trigger protective mechanisms that contribute to antibiotic resistance. It is the first time this type of behavior is identified.
