"The term “Wireless Network Infrastructure” has conventionally been associated with macrocell RAN (Radio Access Network) and mobile core network infrastructure. However, the scope of the term is expanding as wireless carriers increase their investments in Heterogeneous Network or HetNet infrastr... Read More
Armed forces throughout the globe rely on communication systems to enable information sharing and securely stay in constant contact. The role of these systems continues to grow in importance, with new mission areas such as the control of unmanned vehicles and time-critical targeting heavily reli... Read More
FDD still remains the prevalent standard for LTE deployment as a natural progression path for GSM, W-CDMA and CDMA network operators. However, unpaired TDD spectrum costs significantly less per MHz/population than its FDD equivalent and is more widely available.
Driven by the technology’s low... Read More
While LTE and LTE-Advanced deployments are still underway, wireless carriers and vendors have already embarked on R&D initiatives to develop so-called “5G” technology, with a vision of commercialization by 2020.
5G is essentially a revolutionary paradigm shift in wireless networking to s... Read More

Viruses that are harmless to humans might help fight the deadly scourge of bacteria that can't be treated with antibiotics, researchers say.
These viruses could be used in hand santizers, and to treat exposed surfaces in hospitals, which are hotbeds of antibiotic resistance, the researchers n... Read More
New research may revolutionize the slow, cumbersome and expensive process of detecting the antibodies that can help with the diagnosis of infectious and auto-immune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and HIV. An international team of researchers have designed and synthetized a nanometer-scale... Read More
Influenza is known as an infectious respiratory disease, but a study published on October 8th in PLOS Pathogens suggests that infected cells in breast tissues could play a role in virus transmission from mothers to breast-feeding infants and vice versa using a ferret model. Read More

In this third installment of my "Mu-Tube" video series about microbiology and microbiology education, I discuss how I was initially labeled a "microbial supremacist" as a joke, and then embraced the title with enthusiasm. I also show many examples of the microbiology-related art I use to encour... Read More
Here is a follow-up to last week’s article that described a case of variant Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease in a Texas resident caused by ingestion of BSE-contaminated beef 14 years ago.
A 59 year old male patient was admitted to the trauma unit in Lancaster, PA with a self-inflicted gunshot wound ... Read More
Saw your plates in my facebook feed and i'd like to share one a diagnostic microbiology professor made for our class.
I would have to ask or pull out a text book to remember the specifics of the plate. It's an identification plate that will tell you one or two things about a specific bacteria'... Read More
Found this one and one very like it growing on an old YPD (yeast extract, peptone, dextrose) agar plate. Read More
SAN DIEGO--Robots are capable of all sorts of tasks to help better treat cancer: They connect oncologists to patients remotely, make incisions, staple them shut, deliver "nano" therapies--and they clean rooms. New research from Penn Medicine infection control specialists found that ultraviolet (... Read More
SAN DIEGO, CALIF.--Rhesus monkeys were completely protected from the deadly Ebola virus when treated three days after infection with a compound that blocks the virus's ability to replicate. These encouraging preclinical results suggest the compound, known as GS-5734, should be further developed ... Read More

Invasive Salmonella infections in sub-Saharan Africa are a major cause of child illness and deaths, a new body of research into this usually overlooked infectious disease has revealed. Read More
The immune system is our biological defense shield. Antibodies protect the organism against invading pathogens such as viruses or bacteria. In the case of certain autoimmune diseases, however, this defense behavior is misdirected: The antibodies don't just target foreign substances; they also at... Read More
