Proteus mirabilis on Blood Agar

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

Research on photosynthetic antenna complexes illuminates how they harvest light in plants, algae and bacteria

Walk through any woods, branches swaying overhead, and you're surrounded by billions of the world's most efficient systems for collecting energy. Inside every leaf, blade of grass, and algal cell, clusters of proteins and tiny pigments, called photosynthetic antenna complexes, capture sunshine.

Microbes in Raw Milk Influenced by Dairy Cow Environment

Raw milk collected from dairy farms has to travel to processing facilities before it is transformed into the delicious dairy products we consume. Because the milk from many dairy cows is collected together, any contamination issue from a single animal can lead to spoilage or contamination. How r... Read More

Health officials find first cases of new superbug in US

ust five months after federal health officials asked hospitals and physicians to be on the lookout for an often-fatal, antibiotic-resistant fungus called Candida auris, 13 cases have been reported, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Friday. It is the first time that the fun... Read More

Ebola adapted to easily infect people

Two studies, in the journal Cell, found a mutation increased the virus' ability to infect human cells fourfold.

Scientists have argued the mutation may have been "pivotal" in the outbreak becoming the largest in recorded history.

There were 28,616 Ebola cases in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra ... Read More

Smart Microscope Adapts to Changes in Live Specimens

Recent advances in imaging technology have provided unprecedented views of biological events as they unfold in living organisms. Researchers routinely create movies of processes such as cells dividing and differentiating into the neurons, muscle, and skin in a Petri dish or in tiny embryos, such... Read More

Injury triggers stem cell growth in the parasite that causes schistosomiasis

Parasitic flatworms known as schistosomes require a gene called cpb1 in order to survive in mice, according to a new study published in PLOS Pathogens. The study also shows that schistosome stem cells grow in response to injury.

Schistosomes afflict more than 200 million people worldwide and ... Read More

Discovery of new bacteria complicates problem with salmon poisoning in dogs

Researchers at Oregon State University have identified for the first time another bacterium that can cause symptoms similar to "salmon poisoning" in dogs - and may complicate the efforts of Pacific Northwest pet owners to keep their dogs protected and healthy.

The Pacific Northwest, from nort... Read More

Zika virus shrinks and destroys testicles in mice

Most of the research to understand the effects of Zika infections has focused on pregnant women and birth defects. But new study in mice that focuses on the male reproductive system raises serious concerns about its effects on men.

Three weeks after male mice were infected with Zika, their te... Read More

Anti-vaxx conspiracy leaders back Donald Trump, claim it's mutual

Donald Trump has a long history of promulgating anti-vaccine conspiracy theories (contrary to received wisdom, the anti-vaxx movement draws most of its support from the political right, not liberals), and the tireless leaders of the anti-vaccine movement now claim to have met with Trump and rece...

Kavli Microbiome Ideas Challenge - Researching Small Organisms with a Big Impact

All around you, life exists in microscopic communities — carpeting the insides (and outsides) of humans and animals, oceans, atmospheres, and ecosystems in between. Researchers have learned these microbes are ubiquitous and central to the makeup of most life on earth. But what scientists are sti... Read More

Caught in the Act, Literally

As a bacteriologist, when you are interested in the func­tion(s) of a particular protein you're hardly satisfied with biochemical analyses and studying expression patterns. What you'd really like to know is where your protein is localized, where it's actually active in living cells. None of the ... Read More
