Increase in demand for antibiotics to propel the Microbial Culture Industry

Microbiology deals with the study of microorganisms and one of the most prominent and effective ways of identifying and characterizing microorganisms is through the method of microbiology culture or microbial culture. By carefully calculating and combining different growth nutrients, a suitable ... Read More

Microscopic technique to observe antibiotics live in action

A new microscopic technique is enabling scientists to observe the antibiotic daptomycine live in action. This marks an exciting first, because even though doctors have been prescribing this antibiotic for over a decade, its precise mechanisms have remained unclear.

First, the scientists tagg... Read More

Fungus-infecting virus could help track spread of white-nose syndrome in bats

A newly discovered virus infecting the fungus that causes white-nose syndrome in bats could help scientists and wildlife agencies track the spread of the disease that is decimating bat populations in the United States, a new study suggests.

Regional variations in this virus could provide clue... Read More

Association of maternal HSV-2 antibodies and autism spectrum disorder risk

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has no known single cause, and its growing incidence has led many researchers to study its influencing factors. While claims of vaccine relatedness are outright false, there are other variables that may contribute to a propensity toward ASD development, including e... Read More

Global Transcriptional Response of Acinetobacter baumannii to Light Exposure

While detection and reaction to light sources is a well-known process in environmental organisms exposed to diurnal light cycling, light detection also affects the biological processes of human pathogens. The human pathogen Acinetobacter baumannii, a microbe associated with hospital-acquired inf... Read More

Final Student Thoughts From My MIcrobiology Course

Today was the last day of my microbiology course at the University of Puget Sound. So I thought it appropriate for students to tell me the single "coolest" thing they learned in my course. Read More

What are gut bacteria doing in critically ill lungs? New discovery could change ICU care

No one knows for sure how they got there. But the discovery that bacteria that normally live in the gut can be detected in the lungs of critically ill people and animals could mean a lot for intensive care patients.

Today, scientists are reporting that they found gut bacteria in the deepest r... Read More

For the first time, researchers identify key proteins that may make Zika so deadly

Until it burst onto the scene earlier this year, Zika was an obscure, little-known virus. As a result, scientists know little about how it works. Over the past year, they have learned that it can cause a range of dangerous health problems, including birth defects such as microcephaly and neurolo... Read More

IDRI contributes to first point-of-care Chagas disease diagnostic for US

With Chagas disease becoming more prevalent in the United States, a diagnostic to quickly and easily detect infection is needed. Today, IDRI (Infectious Disease Research Institute) announces that a fusion antigen it developed and patented is being used as part of a Chagas disease diagnostic test... Read More

Better Diagnosis of Fungal Infections Key to Reducing Antibiotic Resistance

Poor diagnosis worldwide of fungal disease causes doctors to overprescribe antibiotics, increasing harmful resistance to antimicrobial drugs, according to a paper published today in Emerging Infectious Diseases.

“Inadequate attention is paid to fungal infection as the cause of antibacterial t... Read More

In case you missed it: best of mBiosphere 2016

From archaeal viruses to zoonotic diseases, the breadth of microbiology stories covered on mBiosphere in 2016 was impressive. Here are some of the best posts on mBiosphere from throughout this past year:

Study Links Antibiotic Resistance with Exposure to the Disinfectant Chlorhexidine

Klebsiella pneumoniae bacteria exposed to chlorhexidine-containing disinfectants can become resistant to colistin, a last resort antibiotic often used against multidrug resistant pathogens. This is the first study to link exposure to chlorhexidine with resistance to colistin in this clinically i... Read More

Engineers design programmable RNA vaccines

CAMBRIDGE, MA -- MIT engineers have developed a new type of easily customizable vaccine that can be manufactured in one week, allowing it to be rapidly deployed in response to disease outbreaks. So far, they have designed vaccines against Ebola, H1N1 influenza, and Toxoplasma gondii (a relative ... Read More

Mcr-1 Gene Isolated from Human for the First Time in Brazil

Washington, DC – August 8, 2016 – For the first time in Brazil, a particular antibiotic resistance mechanism conferring resistance to the important antibiotic, colistin, has been detected in a human. It was in a strain of Escherichia coli that was isolated from a diabetic patient’s foot infectio... Read More

Self-Prescribing Antibiotics is a Big Problem

Washington, DC – July 11, 2016 - Five percent of adults from a cohort of 400 people reported using antibiotics without a prescription during the previous 12 months. Twenty-five percent said they would use antibiotics without contacting a medical professional. These findings demonstrate yet anoth... Read More

Computer Model Is ‘Crystal Ball’ for E. Coli Bacteria

It’s difficult to make predictions, especially about the future, and even more so when they involve the reactions of living cells — huge numbers of genes, proteins and enzymes, embedded in complex pathways and feedback loops. Yet researchers at the University of California, Davis, Genome Center ... Read More

Antibiotic Resistance Appears to Persist in Bacteria, Even Absent Selection Pressure From Antibiotics

Washington, DC – August 1, 2016 – Plasmids are pieces of independent DNA that often carry multiple antibiotic resistance genes. Plasmids can jump from one bacterium to another, spreading that resistance. A team of French investigators now shows that bacteria that acquire plasmids containing res... Read More

Gut bacteria imbalance increases diabetes risk

Currently, scientists think the major contributors to insulin resistance are excess weight and physical inactivity, yet ground-breaking new research by an EU funded European-Chinese team of investigators called MetaHit have discovered that specific imbalances in the gut bacteria can cause insuli...
