Flu Pandemics May Lurk in Frozen Lakes

The next flu pandemic may be hibernating in an Arctic glacier or frozen Siberian lake, waiting for rising temperatures to set it free. Then birds can deliver it back to civilization.

New research suggests an influenza virus could go into hiding in the ice when earlier generations of humans, b... Read More

Bacteria used to create ethanol for biofuels

US scientists claim to have successfully used bacteria to create cheap, environmentally-friendly biofuels.

According to research presented at the annual general meeting of the American Society for Microbiology, these microscopic organisms are "biological factories" that can serve as alternati... Read More

Drug Experiment Performed On Atlantis

Astronauts on the space shuttle Atlantis are taking a small amount of time from their work servicing the Hubble Space Telescope to tend a commercial drug experiment aimed at finding a vaccine against a deadly staph infection that plagues hospital patients.

The astronauts essentially have to t... Read More

ASM GM 2009 - How the Microbes in Your Gut Affect Your Weight and Health

Ruth Ley speaks at ASM's General Meeting regarding her research into the human microbiome, specifically what is more important genetics or diet? Ley looks at questions such as, how has the microbiome co-evolved with its animal host species? How does diet shape the structure of gut microbial c... Read More

Scientists develop tool to gauge bad breath

Know someone whose breath could peel the paint off a wall?

Then consider the OkaytoKiss - a device that gauges bad breath that was recently invented by scientists at Tel Aviv University.

The pocket-sized breath test measures malodorous bacteria in your mouth. A blue result suggests you nee... Read More

Bacteria Help Form Clouds

Germs really are everywhere: Bacteria, fungal spores and other biological detritus have been found in clouds and likely help to form the cores of cloud droplets, scientists have found.

The study of the role that these biological particles play in cloud formation could help refine one of the b... Read More

Schools Close as Spike in Swine Flu Cases Hits Japan

In a sudden surge that took Asian health officials by surprise, the Japanese health ministry confirmed on Monday at least 125 new cases of the A(H1N1) virus — or swine flu — in the country's western prefectures of Osaka and Hyogo. Officials have shut down around 1,000 schools since many of the i... Read More

WHO chief: Drug firms OK plan for vaccine to poor

The head of the World Health Organization says major drug companies have agreed on a plan to give poor countries access to a swine flu vaccine and antiviral medications if a worldwide outbreak is declared.

Dr. Margaret Chan says she appealed for help as she met with drug companies and vaccine... Read More

Scientists discover deadly secret of Komodo's bite

The world's largest lizard, the Komodo dragon, has a snake-like venom in its bite which sends victims into shock and stops their blood from clotting, according to Australian research.

It had been widely believed that deadly bacteria in the carnivorous lizard's mouth helped kill its prey.

Nanobot Uses Bacteria Swarm for Propulsion

Canadian researcher Sylvain Martel has developed a ultra tiny machine that can be propelled and steered through a swarm of 3,000 bacteria.

The tiny device, which measures just 300x300 microns, contains a solar cell, communications circuit and sensor. By sensing pH levels and sharing them via ... Read More

Ultra Sound Weapons Knock Out Algal Blooms

Scientists at the University of Hull, UK, think they have found a way to put a stop to red tide by exposing them to blasts of ultrasound. Michiel Postema and his colleagues tested three different frequencies on a particularly harmful species of blue-green algae, Anabaena sphaerica, which can cau... Read More

Oregon researchers isolate RNA from specific cells using fruit flies

A team of University of Oregon biologists, using fruit flies, has created a way to isolate RNA from specific cells, opening a new window on how gene expression drives normal development and disease-causing breakdowns.

While DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) provides an identical genetic blueprint ... Read More

TWiV 32: Influenza in silico

On episode 32 of the podcast "This Week in Virology", Vincent, Alan, and Raul Rabadan converse about polio survivors in iron lungs, bocavirus, structure of mimivirus, and genome sequence analysis of influenza H1N1 viruses. Read More

Complex Microbial Community Structure in Adult Cystic Fibrosis Airways as Revealed by 16S rRNA PhyloChip

This poster, presented at the 109th ASM general meeting demonstrates the relationship between clinical measures of cystic fibrosis, a common and serious genetic disease, with the microbial ecology of bacteria that colonise the airways of these patients. The technique used to characterise the mi... Read More
