Tube morphology

Three organisms inoculated in TSB to look at tube morphology. From left to right:
Staphylococcus aureus: flocculent growth/turbid, growth throughout the tube.
Mycobacterium smegmatis: pellicle, growth at the top of the tube. M. smegmatis tends to stick to the tube and grow up the side.

Using Wordcloud-Reponses to Discover How Students Perceive Concepts in the Classroom

In this blog, I share some "first word that comes to mind" responses of my freshman biology class to the words "germ," "bacteria," "cell," and "DNA." The way that we perceive an idea or concept definitely impacts our relationship with it. Thus, finding out what students think, coming into our ... Read More

Antimicrobial affect of acidophil actimyces isolated from Azerbaijan's soil against E.coli

This picture proves antagonistic property of acidophil actinomyces against Escherichia coli. These cultures of actinomyces were isolated from Azerbaijan's soil in 2012 by me. Read More

Inducible clindamycin resistant (D-test positive) Staphylococcus aureus.

This isolate was also Methicillin resistant. It was my first D-test positive S. aureus isolate during my work on Inducible clindamycin resistance among staphylococci at Universal College of Medical Sciences and Teaching Hospital, Bhairahawa, Nepal. Read More

Pictures Considered. The E. coli Chromosome Caught in the Act of Replicating

We continue our series of images that have made a difference in microbiology. This one, published by John Cairns in 1963 has earned a most deserved place in textbooks and reviews. It shows a radioautograph of an intact E. coli chromosome in the act of replicating. From this image, Cairns conclud... Read More

Model Organism gone wild

Some wild clones of social amoebas farm the bacteria they eat, but this is a losing strategy if nonfarming amoebas can steal the farmers’ crops. To make the strategy work, the farmers also carry bacteria that secrete chemicals that poison free riders. The work suggest farming is complex evolutio... Read More

Getting a Knit Bacteriophage From a Former Student!

A former student dropped by my lab this morning, and brought me a gift: a knit bacteriophage! Many times, as educators, we hear what we haven't done well, or could do better. Sometimes, like today, we get a priceless "thank you" from a former student. Read More

Sweet Valentine

Four intracellular Toxoplasma gondii parasites are shown undergoing cellular division by an internal budding process known as endodyogeny. Staining with a T. gondii surface antigen provided heart-shaped images (shot on Valentine’s Day). The definitive host of these parasites is the cat, but they... Read More

Pictures Considered #6. Seeing What Isn't There

Mapping deletion mutations by genetic tools is one thing, seeing them displayed along the length of a DNA molecule is quite another. But how can one see what isn’t there? In 1968, Ronald Davis and Norman Davidson did just that—visualizing deletion mutations in the genome of coliphage l. They rea... Read More
