Cloning competition drives student and mentor excellence

Mentoring scientific teams in a project-oriented competition, like engineers can do through the ASCE Concrete Canoe National Competition or the SAE Supermileage Competition, is rare in the microbial sciences. Mentoring a team through this experience allows scientists impart different skills than... Read More

Feed a cold, starve a fever? Not so fast, according to Salk research

The last time you had a stomach bug, you probably didn’t feel much like eating. This loss of appetite is part of your body’s normal response to an illness but is not well understood.

Kansas State University is the 'Silicon Valley for biodefense,' according to Blue Ribbon Study Panel

What Silicon Valley is to technology, Kansas State University is to biodefense.

When former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle and the bipartisan Blue Ribbon Study Panel on Biodefense visited the Manhattan campus on Thursday, Jan. 26, for a series of agrodefense discussions, the university ce... Read More

Un Tour d'Horizon

When biochemists deciphered the genetic code in the 1960s (the triplet 'al­pha­bet' for amino acids whose defined order make up the protein 'words' ) it was – and still is – the most compelling evi­­dence for a common "descent with modifications" (Charles Darwin) of all life on Earth: the al­pha...

Interlab Reproducibility in Bacterial Genotyping by Whole-Genome Sequencing

One of the most important aspects of a new laboratory protocol is its reproducibility (as previously discussed on ASM’s Microbial Sciences blog). A protocol must produce the same results when performed by different scientists at different labs, and this is especially important when considering n... Read More

We Know You Want To, but You Really Shouldn't Be Kissing Your Pet on the Mouth

If you live with pets, you know where their tongue has been, yet you let them kiss and lick you all they want without even thinking twice about it. I've heard people say that a dog's mouth is very clean, and that their saliva, delivered by licking, can help heal wounds, but is that really true?

High protein diet could reduce obesity in dogs

“There are many gut microbiome studies on humans and rodents, but not a whole lot on dogs, in particular,” says Johnny Li, a computational biologist at the Nestle Purina PetCare Company, in St. Louis. He recently led a study on the connection between diet and intestinal bacteria on 64 dogs — 32 ... Read More

Viruses Overheard Talking to One Another

Viruses may be stealthy invaders, but a study at the Weizmann Institute of Science reveals a new, chatty side of some: For the first time, viruses have been found communicating with one another. This communication – short “posts” left for kin and descendants – helps the viruses reading them to d... Read More
