How a bacterial cell recognizes its own DNA

It may come as a bit of a surprise to learn that bacteria have an immune system - in their case to fight off invasive viruses called phages. And like any immune system - from single-celled to human - the first challenge of the bacterial immune system is to detect the difference between "foreign"... Read More

Fungi on Tea

A group of fungi growing on the surface of stagnant black tea left open to the environment. I've found this leads to beautiful morphologies when I try it. Read More

Frozen Poop Pills Fight Life-Threatening Infections

Fecal transplants can be life-saving for people with stubborn bacterial infections, but they're not for the faint of heart. So doctors have come up with a way to make them more palatable – the frozen poop pill.

People infected with Clostridium difficile suffer debilitating diarrhea, but the b... Read More

Unfertilized egg Ascaris

Female ascaris release unfertilized eggs which are elongated in shape. Eggs are always bile stained. Children are more susceptible towards ascaris infestation. It is one of the major public health problem in developing countries. Read More

Footage From 1976 Documents Discovery of Ebola Virus

In 1976, a group of health workers took a pair of film cameras to what was then known as Zaire and documented their discovery of a new, deadly virus.

Today we know that virus as Ebola.

A 27-year-old Belgian microbiologist named Peter Piot and his colleagues were the first to scientifically... Read More

Unknown Fungal Contaminant/MAC

Unknown fungal isolated contaminant found on MAC. MAC plate was incubated for 2 months at 4 degrees C once fungal growth was seen. This colony seemed to emerge from the agar and had a 3D appearance. The center of the colony had what seemed to be hyphal growth while the edges had a hard waxy un... Read More

Thames study: rivers can be a source antibiotic resistance

Rivers and streams could be a major source of antibiotic resistance in the environment.

The discovery comes following a study on the Thames river by scientists at the University of Warwick’s School of Life Sciences and the University of Exeter Medical School.

The study found that greater n... Read More

Mapping the Bacteria in the NYC Subway (video)

For more than a year, Cornell University's Christopher Mason and his team of researchers have been identifying bacteria in the New York City subway system. And some of the findings might surprise you. Photo: Katie Orlinsky for The Wall Street Journal

Scientists find way to trap, kill malaria parasite

Scientists may be able to entomb the malaria parasite in a prison of its own making, researchers report. As it invades a red blood cell, the malaria parasite takes part of the host cell's membrane to build a protective compartment. The parasite then starts a series of major renovations that tran...

Yeast Cells in sputum

Sputum specimen from sick of fibrosis cystic can hold many microbes and yeast. This specimen sent to our laboratory Mycobacteriology of Polyclinic University of Messina for mycobacteria research, shows yeast cells with Ziehl-Neelsen stain. Read More

Yogurt bacteria could replace colonoscopies for cancer detection

Let's face it: colonoscopies are pretty unpleasant. But what if you could eat a spoonful of yogurt to check for cancer rather than enduring that procedure? MIT professor Sangeeta Bhatia is working on engineered bacteria that detects colorectal cancer. Read More

Human tape worm drug shows promise against MRSA in lab

PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] -- A new study provides evidence from lab experiments that a drug already used in people to fight tapeworms might also prove effective against strains of the superbug MRSA, which kills thousands of people a year in the United States. Read More

The incubation period of a viral infection

The time before the symptoms of a viral infection appear is called the incubation period. During this time, viral genomes are replicating and the host is responding, producing cytokines such as interferon that can have global effects, leading to the classical symptoms of an acute infection (e.g....

Study examines therapeutic bacteria’s ability to prevent obesity

A probiotic that prevents obesity could be on the horizon.

Bacteria that produce a therapeutic compound in the gut inhibit weight gain, insulin resistance and other adverse effects of a high-fat diet in mice, Vanderbilt University investigators have discovered.

“Of course it’s hard to spec... Read More

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

Huge orange fungus?

This picture was taken in early October 2014 in the Washington, DC metro area. The temperature that week had been in the mid-70's during the day to the low 60's at night (Fahrenheit), and it hadn't been too humid. This had grown at the base of a tree, and was very large -- my hand is in there fo... Read More
