Scraping away at the complex microbial communities that cause periodontal disease

Though both gingivitis and periodontitis are diseases of the gums, the related ailments are not simply different severities of the same disease, finds a new study published in Applied and Environmental Microbiology. Researchers confirmed this by investigating the bacterial composition of the sup... Read More

The cities of the future could be built by microbes

Today in Phys.org, Martyn Dade-Robertson explores the possibility of using microbes to produce natural cement. This process, called biomineralisation, was discovered deep under water off the coast of the Greek island of Zakynthos.
Future implications for biomineralisation include self-healing ... Read More

Yes, There Are Lots of Germs on the Subway, but Most Are Harmless

Every day, more than 18 million pairs of hands are touching those surfaces in New York’s subway system, the largest in the nation.
bacteria on bus

Boston’s T, the United States' fourth busiest mass transit system, sees 569,200 passengers on any given workday. Since each of those people has a... Read More

WSJ: Microbial Nanowires

Researchers as the University of Massachusetts are working with Geobacter by manipulating their genetic material. This manipulation makes the bacteria produce filaments of tryptophan, increasing the electrical conductivity of the bacteria by 2,000 times.

The uses for these nanowires could be... Read More

Nature World News: Antarctic Sea Ice Houses Bacteria Capable of Coverting Mercury to Neurotoxin

Scientists have confirmed that the bacteria Nitrospina is present in Antarctic Sea Ice. Nitrospina has "the genetic ability to convert mercury to a potent neurotoxin known as methylmercury". If ingested, this neurotoxin can cause developmental and physical problems for fetuses, babies, and young... Read More

Science Magazine: New antibiotic found in human nose

With drug-resistant bacteria on the rise, scientists believe the nose is engaging in "microbial warfare". Scientists in Germany have identified that Staphylococcus lugdunensis, found in the nose, excretes a compound they named lugdunin. This compound prevents S. aureus from growing. S. aureus ca...

ASMCUE Happenings 2016

No matter the niche field a scientist pursues, there is one aspect of almost all career paths that scientists have in common: teaching. Whether lecturing a quorum of undergraduates about bacterial genetics, mentoring a research fellow as they learn the lab protocols, or presenting an invited lec... Read More

Mosquito saliva enhances virus replication and disease

Mosquito saliva, which is injected into the host as a mosquito probes for a blood vessel, contains a collection of chemicals which include anticoagulants to prevent blood clotting, vasodilators to keep blood vessels wide, and anesthetics to prevent us from sensing the mosquito. Saliva also conta... Read More

Let it Glow! People "painting" with luminous bacteria onto plates #luxart

Painting with glowing bacteria. What better way to get students anyone excited about microorganisms? Dr. Mark O. Martin, a self-proclaimed “Microbial Supremacist” uses glowing bacteria to entice students to explore the mysteries of microbiology. Now fellow microbiology educators at ASMCUE creat... Read More

Anti-Vax = Anti-Facts (Please Share)

"Hivi and his team of viruses (Ebola, Pox,..etc) believe they can win the battle, but the Virologists (who are real famous professors) beat them. However, new viruses pop-up, it will be a long battle. This makes the story very interesting and ever so engaging."

Memory loss caused by a virus

Well you may ask what virus ?

and I tell you West Nile Virus ( but I want to change it to WNV ). Every year when mosquito season arrives it will bring a lot of diseases . one of them is the memory loss. you may ask how does memory loss concern WNV?
THE ANSWER:

Thousands of people are liv... Read More

Zika epidemic could burn out in 3 years but return in a decade

The Zika epidemic could be over in three years – but by then up to 93.4 million people may have been infected, including 1.65 million women of childbearing age, and tens of thousands of babies could be affected. But even if the epidemic fizzles out, this could be a temporary relief: a decade lat... Read More

Large Protein Nanocages Could Improve Drug Design and Delivery

Using novel computational and biochemical approaches, scientists have accurately designed and built from scratch 10 large protein icosahedra -- polyhedra with 20 faces -- similar to viral capsids that carry viral DNA. The designed structures are made of two different engineered proteins, present... Read More

Watch Bacteria Jiggle, Pulse, and Shine to a Party Rock Anthem

A scientist from Columbia University is programming bacteria to "flicker, pulsate, shimmer, flow, and do the wave in a rainbow of neon color". In this video, petri dishes of these glowing bacteria are choreographed to Party Rock Anthem. However, this creative intersection of science and art does... Read More

Mouse microbes may make scientific studies harder to replicate

The microbes that reside in mice are making it difficult to replicate scientific studies. Despite many researchers best efforts to standardize the environment and conditions that their mice live in, replication isn't always possible. While "cagemates" tend to have the same microbes in their gut,... Read More

THE RIDDLE OF THE R.I.D.L _ Zika virus Comics (Playlist)

In Zanzare, the new comic from Cimaza (www.cimazacomics.com/), we are plunged head-first into the global mystery of the Zika virus. We meet the mosquitoes (in Italian: zanzare) implicated in its spread; but the insects plead their innocence, saying it's all a misunderstanding. They lay their cas... Read More

The Epidemiology and Transmissibility of Zika Virus in Giradot and San Andres Island, Colombia, Sept. 2015 to Jan. 2016

Transmission of Zika virus (ZIKV) was first detected in Colombia in September 2015. As of April 2016, Colombia had reported over 65,000 cases of Zika virus disease (ZVD). We analysed daily surveillance data of ZVD cases reported to the health authorities of San Andres and Girardot, Colombia, bet... Read More

The Counterintuitive Way That Microbes Survive in Antarctica

A newly discovered microbe is changing the way scientists think about microbes in cold climates. Marinomonas primoryensis was found in Ace Lake, Antarctica, having attached itself to ice via antifreeze proteins. After a few experiments, scientists believe that M. primoryensis attaches to ice b... Read More
