Biology Plug N' Play

When you're hard drive fails, you order a new one online and then swap it out. Why can't we do that for biological parts as well? From DNA robots and "organs-on-a-chip" to nanobristles that grab-and-release drugs, this slideshow explores the two major goals of synthetic biology: to build new bio... 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

Pseudomonas aeruginosa

This colorized version depicts a scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a number of Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteria.

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a gram-negative, rod-shaped, asporogenous, and monoflagellated bacterium that has an incredible nutritional versatility. It is about 1-5 µm in length ... 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
