Happy Valentine's day!
Love is scientifically proven! Look to this microscope picture I took of my heart-shaped HaCaT cell in love with Staphylococcus aureus !
Even our microscopic cells need love.. and so we do! Read More
At the start of each semester students do environmental swabs. This was a swab taken form the bottom of a shoe incubated for 48 hrs at 37 degrees C then held at room temp for 48 hrs then held at refrigerated temp's. Seen is a beige matt colony, rhizoid and raised in the center edges fuzzy (not s... Read More
Mix of organism seen on a handprint/finger on TSA after incubation at 37 degrees for 24 hrs then held at refrigerated temperatures for 1 month. Read More
A sample of Proteus mirabilis was inoculated on to a blood agar plate by taking a sterile swab and placing a drop in the center of the plate. The plate was then incubated at 37 degrees for 8 hrs. Swarming motility can be seen as a halo around the growth in the center of the plate. Read More

After seeing living microbial mats forming stromatolites in Yellowstone in Part One, now we go back in time to the Jurassic period - hunting for microbial fossils in the desert of Utah. It's Part Two of the National Park anniversary series, live on the ASM blog! #NPS100 Read More
Swab taken from the lab table top and incubated on TSA for 48 hrs, left at room temperature for 72 hrs then held at refrigerated temperature for a month. Pictured is one of the resulting bacterial/fungal growths (yeast): Circular yellow colony, mucoid, with a donut like appearance
Meet the Microbe Mafia: K. rhizophila, E. coli, and C. xerosis. They might seem like friendly bacteria but are always looking for opportunities to cause disease. Well ..... K. rhiz is really not that bad but peer pressure works in bacterial populations as well. When armed with C. violaceum th... Read More
Bacillus mycodies seen from an environmental swab grown on TSA at 37 degrees C for 49 hrs. Characteristic swirling rhizoid growth can be see. Read More
It will be a great pleasure for me and my group if you can post on your Facebook page attached photo of Petri dishes.

Diphtheria an infection caused by Corynebacterium diphtheriae can be fatal at times, especially if it involves the respiratory tract. They multiply locally on mucous membrane, produce toxin causing necrosis of epithelial cells and ultimately form pseudomembranous coat. These pseudomembrane may ... Read More

Currently, it is well established that prokaryotes possess cytoskeleton and organelles. This image depicts how magnetic organelles, magnetosomes, are properly partitioned and segregated by a mechanism that relies on the treadmilling of a dedicated cytoskeletal structure, the actin-like MamK fila...

Close up of a single colony or an unknown contaminant (yeast?) on BEA agar after 1 month in the refrigerator. Looks like there was moisture on the plate as the colonies grew in a drip like pattern. Colonies were mucoid salmon red in color with yellow pin point circular growths growing in through... Read More
