Eye of Science - Scientific photography

Beautiful scanning electron microscopy images.

"For 2 decades we have been devoting our work to the visualization of the previously unknown and invisible. Detailed, aesthetic, and scientifically correct we present an access into the microscopic world of biology, medicine, chemistry, technolog... Read More

Rhodotorula

Pictured here is Rhodotorula, a beautiful coral-colored yeast grown on Sabouraud's Dextrose Agar.

Rhodotorula species are common environmental contaminants, found naturally in air, water, soil, and other areas. This yeast rarely is a pathogen, though it can cause infections in immumocompromis... Read More

Reducing antibiotic requests from patients with viral infections

For anyone interested in Antibiotic Awareness Week, a big part of the story is that patients (or their parents) demand antibacterials even for viral infections. And doctors often comply, just to get rid of them (the patients, that is). This high-resolution PDF can be printed out for waiting ro... Read More

Catch-and-Release

Another major goal of synthetic biology is to engineer unnatural molecules and compounds into systems and tools that mimic those found in biology. For instance, Joanna Aizenberg and her laboratory have pioneered using self-assembling synthetic nanofibers to generate capture-and-release devices t... Read More

Summer Research, Undergraduate Students, Lab Themed Desserts, and Bdellovibrio!

In this blog post, I discuss our Summer Research Program's "Lab Themed Dessert" competion, for which one of my students created a cake "sculpture" of Bdellovibrio attacking and invading E. coli. It was tasty, informative, and fun! My student clearly thought about Bdellovibrio a LOT during the ... Read More

Fluid Thioglycollate Media

Organisms grown in Fluid Thioglycollate Media w/out resazurin dye is a reducing media that uses sodium thioglycollate to chemically combine with dissolved oxygen to deplete the oxygen in the media. All organism except for Neisseria sicca were grown for 48 hours at 37 degrees C. Neisseria sicca i... Read More

Some Observations on the Transformation of Self

Artist Anne Brodie, Microbiologist Dr Simon Park and Curator Dr Caterina Albano collaborated in researching the communication and light producing properties of bioluminescent bacteria outside of the usual confines of pure scientific practice. Over the course of 2009 and 2010 we developed a body ... Read More

Bacillus cereus Biofilm viewed under microscope

Bacillus cereus, a food-borne pathogen, is capable to form biofilms. Biofilms are microbial communities that are controlled by a biological mechanism called quorum sensing. In this image, the B. cereus biofilm was viewed under microscope using LPO and grown in microtiter plate well for 48 hrs of... Read More

Mannitol Salt Agar (MSA)

Mannitol Salt Agar (MSA)
•Important Ingredients: Phenol red, mannitol (sugar), 7.5% NaCl
•Differential: between pathogenic S. aureus and S. epidermidis
•Selective: NaCl inhibits non-halophilic organisms. Organism that can grow are halophilic.
•Mannitol Fermentors: fermentation of acid cau... Read More
