Returning an Ebola case to the community leaves a patient untreated and prolongs the epidemic, but admitting someone with a different illness... Read More

Cattle-killer: Two parasites are better than one

When calves are infected by two parasite species at the same time, one parasite renders the other far less deadly, according to a new study published in the current journal of Science Advances Read More

Dartmouth Investigators Develop Antibacterial Enzymes to Combat Drug-Resistant Bacterial Pathogens

By engineering antibacterial enzymes, Dartmouth investigators led by Karl Griswold, PhD are using novel strategies to target the prevalent drug-resistant bacterium Staphylococcus aureus. Recent papers in FEMS Microbiology Letters and Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology describe their findings... Read More

HeLa RNA is everywhere

The first immortal human cell line ever produced, HeLa, originated from a cervical adenocarcinoma taken from Henrietta Lacks. The cell line grew so well that it was used in many laboratories and soon was found to contaminate other cell lines. Now HeLa RNA has made its way into human sequence dat... Read More

NIH funds 9 antimicrobial resistance diagnostics projects

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health, has awarded more than $11 million in first-year funding for nine research projects supporting enhanced diagnostics to rapidly detect antimicrobial-resistant bacteria. The awardee institu... Read More

Race for Ebola vaccine heats up as cases slow

LAUSANNE, SWITZERLAND—As scientists and medical experts race to develop a vaccine to stop the spread of Ebola, there are concerns the window of opportunity may be closing. Read More

MALDI-TOF and the Clinical Microbiology Laboratory

In this interview, Dr. Robert Jerris, Director of Clinical Microbiology at the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Pediatric Hospital, discusses his experiences in implementing and using the MALDI Biotyper for clinical diagnostics use. In part one of our interview, Dr Jerris explains how this techn... Read More

Skin microbiome may hold answers to protect threatened gold frogs from lethal fungus

A team of scientists including Virginia Tech researchers is one step closer to understanding how bacteria on a frog's skin affects its likelihood of contracting disease. Read More

The italians microbiologists are online on Facebook with this new group where they can talk about concerns all microbiology areas. Our aim is to link whole the microbiologists and to create a network for exchange of ideas and materials. We post photos from our laboratory works, we post some pape... Read More

Six questions about HIV/AIDS that deserve more attention

As HIV investigators work to control and eradicate the virus worldwide, certain myths or misconceptions about the disease have been embraced, whereas other concepts with merit have been left relatively unexplored, argues American HIV/AIDS researcher Jay Levy, MD, in a commentary publishing April...

Out of a pickle

For centuries - millenia even - people have learned to harness the power of microbes such as bacteria, yeasts, and other fungi for the purpose of improving the quality of foods. Some have been employed (accidentally or intentionally) to enhance flavor (i.e. cheeses, breads) while others have be... Read More

YOUR GUT NEEDS BACTERIA TO MAKE MORE SEROTONIN

A new study from CalTech suggests that serotonin levels may be regulated to some degree by the gut microbiome. Researchers are investigating the degree to which bacteria in the guts of mice are able to confer serotonin-dependent function in comparison to control, or "germ-free" mice. Further s... Read More

Cytomegalovirus hijacks human enzyme for replication

Researchers at Princeton have discovered that cytomegalovirus manipulates a process called fatty acid elongation, which makes the very-long-chain fatty acids necessary for virus replication. Published in the journal Cell Reports on March 3, the research team identified a specific human enzyme--e... Read More

HIV can spread early, evolve in patients' brains

The AIDS virus can genetically evolve and independently replicate in patients' brains early in the illness process, researchers funded by the National Institutes of Health have discovered. An analysis of cerebral spinal fluid (CSF), a window into brain chemical activity, revealed that for a subs... Read More

Computational model simulates bacterial behavior

University of Notre Dame applied mathematician Mark Alber and environmental biotechnologist Robert Nerenberg have developed a new computational model that effectively simulates the mechanical behavior of biofilms. Their model may lead to new strategies for studying a range of issues from blood c... Read More
