Microbial infection is implicated in an ever-growing number of types of cancer. Adding to the already long list of microbial-associated cancers, an increasing body of evidence suggests breast cancer may also be associated with a specific microbial milieu. A report in Applied and Environmental Mi... Read More
People increasingly get medical information online, so it's important for physicians to understand how antibiotic drugs are presented to the curious public. I've collected several definitions of "antibiotic" and "microorganism" to demonstrate how people might easily think colds and flu are treat... Read More
When Antonio Gonzalez began doctoral studies in Rob Knight’s laboratory, then at University of Colorado, Boulder, the computer scientist quickly learned about microbes and their connection to human health. He soon found a connection to his wife’s health jumping out of the literature at him.

In systems biology studies, the integration of multiple omics measurements (i.e., genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and lipidomics) has been shown to provide a more complete and informative view of biological pathways. Thus, the prospect of extracting different types of molecu... Read More
A new 3-D printed, easily assembled smartphone microscope developed at Stanford University turns microbiology into game time. The device allows kids to play games or make more serious observations with miniature light-seeking microbes called Euglena.
