Despite continued medical advances, infectious diseases kill over 10 million people worldwide each year. The ecological complexity of many emerging disease threats--interactions among multiple hosts, multiple vectors and even multiple parasites--often complicates efforts aimed at controlling dis...

More fun... Didn't get this in on time because I was sick. I always enjoy having fun in the lab. Thanks for looking. Read More
Sorry I didn't get this in on time... I was out sick. Go royals! E.coli growth at 48hr... I meant to have it in for 24hrs but I got sick and didn't come into work. So it's a little over grown. However, it's still fun! Read More

Ribose Nucleic Acid, also named RNA, is the intermediary of DNA and protein. Compared with DNA, RNA has less molecular-weight but more classification.With the development of all kinds of research, scientists found that RNA plays an important role in the evolution of life. I hope this article can... Read More
Hi colleagues, here is a portret of young microbiolosist who spend all his time in laboratory and hope on great publication in journal like Nature. It's joke but very reality. My PhD student Anastsasia Knyazeva is the author of this picture. It was designed by Escherichia coli on the Endo Agar ... Read More
A joint submission by two gator alumni. As coworkers and infection control practitioners we felt it would be a refreshing change of pace to cast a positive light upon bacteria that are usually known for the havoc they wreak. And what better excuse than the ASM Agar Art contest? #AgarArt2015 #A... Read More
Origene. In this picture, nucleic acids are showing the origin, the very beginning, the masterpiece where evolution take place in the microbial world! Some of the genetics "branch" DNA or RNA is revealing most of the microbial diversity that sustains our biosphere. It is amazing how the genetic... Read More
E. coli K-12, a non-pathogen for most part, is a sorbitol fermenter and appears as pink to red colored colonies whereas E. coli O157:H7 colonies are not colored, on the differential BBL™ MacConkey II agar with sorbitol media plates. These two strains were used to paint the abstract sun, whose wa... Read More
My name is Variovorax paradoxus,
I grow in the soil rhizosphere of helianthus,
I make it look cute from petal to root
by promoting it’s growth
with other bacteria near the sunflower's root
Then the sunflower shines as bright as the sun
To attract butterflies and birds too
In the backyard... Read More
When I first set out to make an American flag out of bacteria, I thought it would be easy: I’d just use some Serratia marcescens for the red and various strains of Escherichia coli on x-gal for the blue and white. For the first attempt, in the center, I used S. marcescens for the red stripe, a S... Read More
Inspired by Vincent van Gogh's paintings of wheat fields, this TSA agar plate features the bright yellow pigmented Micrococcus luteus, a highly versatile organism found throughout the environment. The bacteria can break down toxic chemicals, enabling them to survive in extreme en... Read More
'Tis the Pseudo was inspired by the upcoming holiday season! Six strains of color producing Pseudomonas aeruginosa and a yellow strain of Staphylococcus aureus were used to create an abstract holiday design. P. aeruginosa secretes a variety of pigments, including pyocyanin (blue-green), pyoverdi... Read More
Staphylococcus aureus (pink), Staphylococcus saprophyticus (white) and Enterococcus faecalis (blue) are all normal flora on human skin. These three organisms normally live on skin and rarely cause infection unless presented to an open wound. Staphylococcus aureus and Enterococ... Read More
