The many faces of group A streptococcus: “flesh eating bacteria” (includes video)

The “flesh eating bacteria” is actually a relatively rare bacterial infection technically known as necrotizing fasciitis.

The most common organism that causes this devastating disease is Streptococcus pyogenes (group A strep), however other bacteria have been implicated (Clostrid... Read More

'Bacterial Computers': Genetically Engineered Bacteria Have Potential To Solve Complicated Mathematical Problems

US researchers have created 'bacterial computers' with the potential to solve complicated mathematics problems. The findings of the research demonstrate that computing in living cells is feasible, opening the door to a number of applications. The second-generation bacterial computers illustrate ... Read More

Trailer for "Under Our Skin"

From Underourskin.com - A gripping tale of microbes, medicine & money UNDER OUR SKIN investigates the untold story of Lyme disease, an emerging epidemic larger than AIDS. Each year thousands go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, often told that their symptoms are "all in their head." Following the sto... Read More

Mass. Biofuel Co. Increases Cellulosic Ethanol Yield Above DOE's Threshold for Commercial Production

A Massachusetts-based biofuel company called Qteros, formerly known as SunEthanol, has announced an ethanol yield well beyond what the U.S. Department of Energy considers the threshold for commercial production using a technology called Q Microbe, which turns biomass into cellulosic ethanol,

Making Human Genomic Sequencing a Business

MIT's Technology Review offers some interesting insight into the business of personal genome sequencing and analysis:

In some ways, Jorge Conde, cofounder of the genomics startup Knome, knows his clients more intimately than any other company president. Knome is the first company to sequence... Read More

Cells in the Lungs Use Taste Receptors to Detect Bitter Compounds

Like that of the tongue, cell receptors in the lungs can detect bitter substances. "Epithelial cells that line the airways in the lungs use the same type of sensory receptors" as found in the tongue and act to repel bitter compounds which are often toxic. "Tiny, hair-like projections called cili... Read More

Living, Breeding Mice Grown From Skin Cells

Reprogrammed mouse skin cells have resulted in living mice. Mice that have since reproduced and seen their offspring reproduce as well. "The reprogrammed adult cells, known as induced pluripotent stem cells or iPS cells" are similar to embryonic stem cells however researchers are unsure if these... Read More

New Method For HIV Testing Holds Promise For Developing World

Some of the places most affected by HIV and AIDS such as sub-Saharan Africa (almost a third of all new HIV infections and AIDS-related deaths globally) are also the same places least likely to be able to afford adequate testing for the disease in some of it's most critical patients, newborns.

Programming Cells to Do the Work

Synthetic Biology May Eventually Lead to New Treatments for Disease

James J. Collins wants to turn living cells into tiny robots that can be programmed to take on tasks that range from attacking tumors in the body to guiding the development of stem cells in the lab.

That goal remains dista... Read More

Putting the "Cell" in Cell Phone: Adapter Turns Its Camera into a Microscope

A low-cost adapter for cell phone cameras can capture images of abnormal cells and parasites.

A few years ago University of California, Berkeley, professor Daniel Fletcher challenged the undergraduate students in his optics and microscopy course to develop an instrument using only a cell phon... Read More

Microbes ‘R’ Us

This week, the 40th anniversary of the first moon landing, there’s much talk of exploring other worlds. Which is exciting and grand; such is the stuff that dreams are made on. Yet we don’t need to go abroad to find amazing new life forms. We just need to look at the palms of our hands, the tips ... Read More

'Long-haired' Water Molds Are The Most Virulent

The water mould Saprolegnia can cause skin disease in salmon during its freshwater phase. The mould attacks both fish and eggs and has at times caused great economic loss for the fish farming industry, both in Norway and in other salmon-producing countries. Saprolegnia infection may be seen with... Read More

Fighting Hepatitis E Atom By Atom

Researchers at Rice University and their international colleagues have for the first time described the atomic structure of the protein shell that carries the genetic code of hepatitis E (HEV). Their finding could mean that new ways to stop the virus may come in the not-too-distant future.
