Study Sheds Light on What Causes Cells to Divide

When a rapidly-growing cell divides into two smaller cells, what triggers the split? Is it the size the growing cell eventually reaches? Or is the real trigger the time period over which the cell keeps growing ever larger?

A novel study published online today in the journal Current Biology ha... Read More

China battles virus that has killed two pandas and left third critical

A deadly virus has claimed the lives of two of China's beloved giant pandas and left a third in critical condition.

Chinese state media reported this week that veterinarians are using antiviral therapy to treat five-year-old Feng Feng, after medical tests showed serious damage to the panda's ... Read More

Seeking single cells’ secrets

The National Institutes of Health has awarded grants totaling $7.9 million in 2014 to 25 research teams who are unraveling the workings of single cells, as part of an effort to spur development of personalized treatments that target disease at the cellular level. The grants are supported by the ... Read More

Tracing evolution of chicken flu virus yields insight into origins of deadly H7N9 strain

Scientists from St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and China Agricultural University identify the changes in H9N2 flu virus in chickens that could signal emergence of viruses with potential to trigger a pandemic.

An international research team has shown how changes in a flu virus that has ... Read More

New Tools against Biofilms [Video]

As you might expect for organisms that are billions of years old, bacteria have evolved lots of tricks to protect themselves in often-hostile surroundings. One of their most effective strategies is to coat themselves with a gooey layer, known as biofilm, which insulates them from predators, hars... Read More

"Extreme measures" needed to see Ebola shot development through

Developing and bringing to market effective Ebola vaccines requires extreme measures and unprecedented international cooperation, global health experts said on Monday.

In an interim report on a roadmap for vaccines against the current and any future outbreaks of the deadly virus, infectious d... Read More

New Species Discovered Beneath Ocean Crust

Two miles below the surface of the ocean, researchers have discovered new microbes that “breathe” sulfate.

The microbes, which have yet to be classified and named, exist in massive undersea aquifers — networks of channels in porous rock beneath the ocean where water continually churns. About ... Read More

Cow Dung Itself Breeds Antibiotic Resistance

When antibiotics first became available, farmers used them indiscriminately—dribbling streptomycin into chicken feed to boost growth and doling out low doses to fatten pigs. Now scientists know that the overuse of antibiotics in livestock can foster drug-resistant bacteria that are dangerous to ... Read More

Cold Plasma Treatment May Reduce Risk of Norovirus Transmission

Treating surfaces with cold atmospheric pressure plasma (CAPP) may reduce the risk of transmitting norovirus, a contagious virus leading to stomach pain, nausea and diarrhea, according to a new study.

Compound keeps virus sealed in its "pocket"

A new class of compounds may be an effective way to fight a virus that leaves children with serious respiratory infections and might be associated with polio-like symptoms.

Researchers used a technique called X-ray crystallography to learn the precise structure of the original strain of enter... Read More

Mapping for Ebola: A Collaborative Effort

One of the difficulties faced by teams responding to the current Ebola outbreak in West Africa is identifying individuals and communities residing in remote areas. Existing maps of these regions either do not exist or are inadequate or outdated. This means that basic data like location of houses... Read More

What Are the Consequences of Antibiotic Overuse?

The development and widespread adoption of so-called “antibiotics”—drugs that kill bacteria and thereby reduce infection—has helped billions of people live longer, healthier lives. But all this tinkering with nature hasn’t come without a cost. The more we rely on antibiotics, the more bacteria d... Read More

Predicting superbugs' countermoves to new drugs

With drug-resistant bacteria on the rise, even common infections that were easily controlled for decades -- such as pneumonia or urinary tract infections -- are proving trickier to treat with standard antibiotics.

New drugs are desperately needed, but so are ways to maximize the effective lif... Read More

THE YEAR IN PLAGUES: EBOLA, THE INVASIVE SPECIES OF FLORIDA, AND MORE

As 2014 comes to an end, let’s take a look at the year's biggest outbreaks, pathogens, and technofix dramas.
Ebola was arguably the biggest story of the year. Some of the best coverage, in my opinion, included this epic Washington Post story exploring why the outbreak grew so out of control; Ri... Read More

How gaming technology could stop the spread of Ebola

The room is framed by a small square of transparent plastic, clamped to each of my cheeks and secured with a strap around my forehead. My breathing, growing ever more laboured, sounds like an astronaut’s; the erratic inhale and exhale of someone short on oxygen and trying not to panic. A paper m... Read More

The Importance of Microbial Eukaryotes in Premise Plumbing Systems

The environmental engineering research community now recognizes that it is important to understand the bacterial ecology of premise (building) plumbing systems to control opportunistic pathogens (OP). Many investigations, including those supported by the Sloan Foundation MoBE program, have begun... Read More

TWiP 81: Living in a wormy world

Vincent, Dickson, and Daniel provide the solution to last week's case study, present a new one, and discuss how immune suppression by nematodes increases tuberculosis fatality in African buffalo.

Ebola experts say 16 other bat viruses could infect man

Scientists looking for Ebola in bats have identified 16 other viruses in the animal which could jump to humans and potentially cause a disease outbreak on a similar scale to the West African crisis, a health security expert said on Friday.

Humans can contract Ebola from bats, which are carrie... Read More

Ebola: How does it compare?

Since the first case, a two-year-old who passed away on 28 December 2013, there have been more than 6,900 deaths.

Outbreaks such as Ebola have an ability to spread fear around the world, often through the prism of sensationalist media reporting.

So how does Ebola actually compare to previo... Read More
