Sociobiology of microbes is an emerging branch of science that has delivered interesting and intriguing research findings over the last few years. The revelations are such that the research perspective of microbes is gradually drifting from pure culture analysis to community analysis. We review to substantiate the need for microbial socio-bio studies and codicil the decade long research pursuit and their findings using advanced technologies of Microarrays and Next Generation Sequencing, prompting for more lunge in transcriptomic and metatranscriptomic studies.
