A newly developed spectroscopy method is helping to clarify the poorly understood molecular process by which an anti-HIV drug induces lethal mutations in the virus's genetic material. The findings from the University of Chicago and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology could bolster efforts ... Read More
Does the term “microbiome” have dual meanings, an ecological one (BIOME, as in community) and a genomic one (OME, as in genomics)? An interesting blog post. Read More
“It is exciting that this team were able to validate an ancient traditional remedy,” said Cassandra Quave, an ethnobotanist whose Emory University lab studies the antimicrobial properties of plant compounds. “It demonstrates that traditional medicine—which 80 percent of the world still uses—isn’...

The antibiotic Colistin, which was approved in the 1950's, is now being used as a 'last resort' against multidrug-resistant Gram-negative bacterial infections, despite its nephrotoxic potential. The study, conducted by an international team of NIAID-funded researchers, found that the drug remai... Read More
For humans, Salmonella is always bad news. The bacterial pathogen causes paratyphoid fever, gastroenteritis and typhoid. But for snakes, the bacteria aren’t always bad news. Certain species of Salmonella are a natural part of the snake microbial collective. However, the occasional species can ca... Read More
A dimorphic fungi Exophiala dermatitidis was grown on Saburaud Choramphenicol agar for 3 weeks. After this a sterile polilysine coated coverslip was applied on colony to collect fungal elements. Coverslip was fixed in glutaraldehyde, dried and observed using Hitachi Scanning Electron Microscope.... Read More

The fact of using antibiotics in aquaculture has immersed a multiresistance in pathogenic bacteria. This is why a spare solution had to be found which is the probiotics. So for that, I isolated lactic bacteria (lactobacilles) from the intestine of a pelagic fish (sardina pilchardus) and did a lo... Read More

Diseases such as HIV and Ebola are on the verge of being diagnosed almost instantly using paper-based technology costing less than $1. Read More
A broad-based approach is necessary, experts said, because overuse of antibiotics from hospitals to U.S. farms has created a problem that has quickly grown out of control. In January, the Obama administration proposed doubling the government's investment in antibiotic resistance to $1.2 billion.... Read More
Demodex folliculorum is microscopic skin mite that lived in the follicle of human hair. Demodex folliculorum as a potential factor in rosacea on the human skin there are two mites Demodex folliculorum and Demodex brevis principally involved in rare human demodex infestations,

This one is a bit more tricky; both Giardia and Cryptosporidium are possible. The symptoms are more those of Cryptosporidium, so that would be my semi-educated guess. Most of that education comes through you, with some help of some CDC... Read More
The routine use of antibiotics in agricultural animals are headed in the wrong direction: sales of antimicrobials important for human medicine have increased 20 percent since 2009 and 3 percent since 2012. Read More
