Do Low-Level Antibiotics Create Mutant “Zoos”?

A new generation of drug-resistant bacteria could be coming faster, and through a different mechanism, than researchers had expected.

That is the scary finding of a new study by William Fairfield Warren Distinguished Professor James J. Collins, a College of Engineering professor of biomedical... Read More

Colonies of Bacteria Fight for Resources with Lethal Protein

Rival colonies of bacteria can produce a lethal chemical that keeps competitors at bay, scientists at UC San Diego, University of Texas and Tel Aviv University report this week.

By halting the growth of nearby colonies and even killing some of the cells, groups of bacteria preserve scarce r... Read More

10 Tips for the Isolation of High Quality RNA from Soil

RNA Isolation from soil is one of the most difficult applications we perform in environmental molecular biology. RNA purification is always an arduous task and from soil it becomes a bigger challenge. One of the biggest problems is the yield of RNA from soil. Because typical yields of RNA are s... Read More

Fight against superbugs goes underground

Scientists are pioneering a way of discovering new antibiotics by analysing the entire genetic blueprint of soil microbes which kill their competitors by producing natural toxins. Screening soil microbes for novel antibiotics is a traditional method of discovering new drugs but the rise of resis... Read More

Microbes implicated in Alzheimer's

The peptide beta amyloid has long been thought to be involved in Alzheimer's disease, though there is a great deal of controversy about whether it's a primary cause of the disease, or merely a symptom. Now, Rudolph Tanzi and his group at Massachusetts General Hospital have shown it might not be ... Read More
