Bacterial-fungal interactions play a fundamental role in many processes including crop biofuel development and biosystem design. In this work, we focus on the interactions between the fungi Laccaria bicolor and the bacterium Psuedomonas fluorescens and their integral role in the fitness of the roots of the Populus tree. L. bicolor synthesizes trehalose which stimulates growth and chemotaxis of P. flourescens. Furthermore, P. flourescens provides L. bicolor with thiamine thereby increasing fungal mass. We developed a multiscale computational model to investigate these interdependent interactions. The growth and branching of the fungal mycelia are modeled using an off-lattice spatial discrete submodel which is dependent on both diffusive and active translocation of internal nutrients and uptake of external nutrients. The fungal growth model is coupled with a thermodynamic-kinetic maximum entropy ODE model for metabolism, containing over 200 reactions including protein and nucleic acid synthesis, from which the costs of growth and maintenance can be calculated. Trehalose secretion, especially at the tips of the hyphae, acts as a source of diffusive chemoattractant for P. fluorescens colony. Numerical simulations of these coupled models under various conditions aid in characterizing the energetic costs of growth and maintenance of L. bicolor in the presence of P. fluorescens.
