Parasites help brine shrimp cope with arsenic habitat contamination

Artemia (the scientific name of the small crustacean that is also commonly known as 'sea monkey') is famous for being able to live in extreme environments and has become a model organism used to test the toxicity of chemicals in water. In addition, Artemia can produce dormant eggs, known as cyst... Read More

Does the hologenome address the whole picture?

How do we define the genetic makeup of an individual? Is it the genetic material found in each cell of that individual (that’s not entirely accurate; mutations and recombinatorial differences can lead to multiple genomes in one individual). And what about the genes carried by our microbiome? The... Read More

Small and extremely resilient—the secrets of black fungi

Highly resistant to stresses, black fungi are real champions among microorganisms. With the support of the Austrian Science Fund FWF, a research team in Vienna discovered that the fungi owe their qualities to hitherto unknown proteins and special processes at cellular level.

They are true sur... Read More

Smart Microscope Adapts to Changes in Live Specimens

Recent advances in imaging technology have provided unprecedented views of biological events as they unfold in living organisms. Researchers routinely create movies of processes such as cells dividing and differentiating into the neurons, muscle, and skin in a Petri dish or in tiny embryos, such... Read More

ASM hosts Wikipedia Edit-a-thon as part of the Year of Science

“Wikipedia is the first place people go for information about science – and everything else,” says John Tracey, Research Assistant in Education & Outreach at the Simons Foundation. The Simons Foundation has teamed up with Google to sponsor the Wikipedia Year of Science 2016, an initiative to inc... Read More

How lack of oxygen makes bacteria cause acne and how to stop it

It’s like Jekyll and Hyde. One moment bacteria on the skin are harmless, the next they are causing a full-on spotty break out. Now researchers have discovered exactly why this happens – a breakthrough that could yield new acne treatments, possibly in two years.

Richard Gallo of the University... Read More

CRISPR screening identifies potential HIV treatment targets

Investigators from the Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT and Harvard and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard have used the revolutionary new gene-editing technology CRISPR-Cas9 to identify three promising new targets for treatment of HIV infection. In their report receiving advance online publicati... Read More

Global E. coli Testing Market to be Worth US$2.1 bn by 2022, Driven by Rising Demand for Enzyme Substrate Kits

Escherichia coli (E.coli) is a Gram negative rod-shaped bacteria commonly found in intestines of warm blooded animals. Majority of the E.coli strains are harmless, however certain strains are known to cause serious medical complications.The rising number of supportive initiatives from government... Read More

The inflammatory nature of a bad recycler

Being a bad recycler implies creating more waste because items aren’t being reincorporated into the production chain. Plastic water bottles can be broken down and turned into new plastic bottles, gardening gloves, or fleece – any of which means less oil needs to be harvested and refined to the p... Read More

First chikungunya vaccine from virus that does not affect people

Researchers from The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston have developed the first vaccine for chikungunya fever made from an insect-specific virus that doesn’t have any effect on people, making the vaccine safe and effective. The newly developed vaccine quickly produces a strong immu... Read More

A Citizen Microbiology project on the Built Environment

There is a growing popular and policy interest in the microbiome, and the possibilities of more nuanced or ‘probiotic’ ways of living with germs. To date however there has been limited public engagement with the science and technology of metagenomics. The project engages with the growing scienti... 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

Protein that activates immune response harms body's ability to fight HIV

n findings they call counterintuitive, a team of UCLA-led researchers suggests that blocking a protein, which is crucial to initiating the immune response against viral infections, may actually help combat HIV.

Findings from a study in animals appear to demonstrate that temporarily blocking a... Read More

Scientists learn how to ramp up microbes' ability to make memories

Some microbes can form memories—although, inconveniently for scientists who study the process, they don’t do it very often.

Rockefeller University researchers and their colleagues at the University of California, Berkeley, have found a way to make bacteria encode memories much more frequently... Read More

White House Goes With Its Gut, Backs New Microbiome Project

The White House wants to encourage research into the microbiome: the microbes living in and on animals, the dirt, oceans and the atmosphere.

The White House says it will propose more than $121 million in federal spending over the next two years at the Department of Energy, NASA, National Inst... Read More

Yum! Digesting ASM Resources for Food Microbiology

Food-related microbiology can be one of the most fun - or least fun - ways to interact with microbes. In the ‘most fun’ category, scientists and non-scientists alike can use microbes to create delicious foods from fermentative processes; in the ‘least fun’ category, scientists and non-scientists...
