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.

Hypnotic Bacteria Cities Provide Lens Into Trippy, Hidden Universes (PHOTOS)

You heard it here first: petri dishes are the new canvases.

When Tel Aviv based physicist and biologist Eshel Ben-Jacob discovered two new strains of bacteria, paenibacillus dendritiformis and the paenibacillus vortex, he also discovered an untapped art form. The bacteria swim outward into sp... Read More

The Hidden Life of Microscopic Fungi

Most mushrooms actually do not produce the visible fruiting bodies known to us as boletus, champignons, or toadstools. Many fungal species are the familiar “mold” and other unappetizing films, or are completely unknown to us. Here, you can discover some of the remarkable shapes and lifestyles of... Read More

Life under the Microscope: Stunning Photographs from the BioScapes Competition [Slide Show]

In the 1800s English poet William Blake famously challenged his readers to “see a world in a grain of sand.” If only he had owned a modern microscope. Thanks to increasingly powerful optical tools, we now know that beneath the skin of every leaf, inside each speck of dirt, and within our own blo... Read More

What's this?

Hi everybody, I saw this in a plash near my house and there was a lot of them. Can somebody help me about the identification or send a link if you know some kind of protozoa base Read More

Keeping Viral Load Low

Over the past 30 years, the combined efforts of scientists and clinicians have delivered remarkable successes in HIV therapeutics. Since 1987, the FDA has approved more than 30 antiviral drugs, including 12 HIV protease inhibitors and one integrase inhibitor. These drugs stop ~99% of viral repli... Read More

Rhizopus microsporus

Rhizopus microsporus columella.
Species of the mucoralean genus Rhizopus are very relevant to society, in several respects. They are known as spoilage organisms,contaminating a variety of foodstuffs and agricultural
products during storage and transport. Because of off-odors, unwanted discolor... Read More

Macrophage Infected with Francisella tularensis Bacteria

Scanning electron micrograph of a murine macrophage infected with Francisella tularensis strain LVS. Macrophages were dry-fractured by touching the cell surface with cellophane tape after critical point drying to reveal intracellular bacteria. Bacteria (colorized in blue) are located either in t...

Fuzzy Frosty

This smiling Frosty is no ordinary snowman—he's made entirely of mold.

The living artwork is the creation of Stephanie Mounaud, an infectious disease researcher at the J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI) in Rockville, Maryland.

For the last several Christmases, Mounaud has used the different ... Read More

Search and destroy!

Search and destroy! This image shows us how an immune cell, called a macrophage, attacks foreign bodies like bacteria – or this microbead – completely engulfing it so it can be broken down deep within the cell.

Visualized using scanning electron microscopy by Darren Brown, University of Queen... Read More

Protein that delays cell division in bacteria may lead to idenfication of new antibiotics

Bacteria adjust to wide fluctuations in food supply by controlling how big they get and how often they divide. Scientists at Washington University in St. Louis have just worked out the control system E. coli use to delay division so they can bulk up when food suddently becomes abundant. What can... Read More
