Engineering the Human Microbiome Shows Promise for Treating Disease

In the not too distant future each of us will be able to colonize our gut with genetically modified “smart” bacteria that detect and stamp out disease at the earliest possible moment. This scenario may sound like the premise for a sci-fi flick, but it is a very real possibility. Microbiome engin... Read More

Ebola survivors offer clues to body's virus defences

The human body can mobilize a strong defense against Ebola virus, suggests a study of four people with the virus who were treated in the United States last year.

A team led by immunologist Rafi Ahmed of Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, found that the people treated at Emory between Augus... Read More

Protection Without a Vaccine

Last month, a team of scientists announced what could prove to be an enormous step forward in the fight against H.I.V.

Scientists at Scripps Research Institute said they had developed an artificial antibody that, once in the blood, grabbed hold of the virus and inactivated it. The molecule ca... Read More

Joint BioEnergy Institute Researchers Use Proteomics to Profile Switchgrass

If advanced biofuels are to replace gasoline, diesel and jet fuel on a gallon-for-gallon basis at competitive pricing, we’re going to need a new generation of fuel crops – plants designed specifically to serve as feedstocks for fuels.

Fuels made from the sugars in plants and other forms of bi... Read More

Bioelectrochemical processes have the potential to one day replace petrochemistry: Lysine production as example

Researchers have found that the electrification of the white biotechnology is not merely a green dream, but an alternative to petrochemistry with realistic economical potential. Compared to classical sugar based bio-processes, bioelectrochemical processes promise improved yields, which could tur... Read More

Radical Vaccine Design Effective Against Herpes Viruses

Herpes simplex virus infections are an enormous global health problem and there is currently no viable vaccine. For nearly three decades, immunologists’ efforts to develop a herpes vaccine have centered on exploiting a single protein found on the virus’s outer surface that is known to elicit rob... Read More

Sizing up cells: Study finds possible regulator of growth

Modern biology has attained deep knowledge of how cells work, but the mechanisms by which cellular structures assemble and grow to the right size largely remain a mystery. Now, researchers may have found the key in a dynamic agglomeration of molecules inside cells.

Link identified between virus recognition, destruction in bacterial immune system

An immune system that helps bacteria combat viruses is yielding unlikely results such as the ability to edit genome sequences and potentially correct mutations that cause human disease.

University of Georgia researchers Michael and Rebecca Terns were among the first to begin to study the bact... Read More

Energetic immune cells are vital for fighting disease

A good immune system relies on a key ‘energy producing’ protein in immune cells to develop immunity to vaccines and disease, an international team of scientists has found.

The protein, called HuR (human antigen R) is critical for controlling metabolism in B cells, which make antibodies that a... Read More

Modified E. coli spin fibres as tough as spider silk

Spider silk is stronger than steel and tougher than Kevlar, but efforts to spin our own have so far failed to match the real thing. Now a German research group has come up with artificial fibres that equal its toughness, which could lead to safer airbags.

His team spliced spider genes into E.... Read More

Attention, All Scientists: Do Improv

Martha Furie stormed into the room and huffily sat down in a chair.

“Well, you know, I’ve been working really hard, studying Lyme disease,” she said, her voice tinged with disdain, to the woman sitting in the next chair. “It’s been a long process. It’s hard to talk about it.”

The other wom... Read More

This filamentous fungus was isolated from soil of a petroleum hydrocarbon polluted ship breaking yard. It can degrade some linear petroleum hydrocarbons, like kerosene, diesel and octane. Read More

The Coming Crisis in Antibiotics

An interesting TED talk about antibiotic resistant bacteria.

Antibiotic drugs save lives. But we simply use them too much — and often for non-lifesaving purposes, like treating the flu and even raising cheaper chickens. The result, says researcher Ramanan Laxminarayan, is that the drugs will... Read More
