The Maloy Lab (MWV11)

 

 

MicrobeWorld visits The Maloy Lab at San Diego State University to talk with Professor Stanley Maloy and three grad students, Dave Matthews, Gerardo Perez and Veronica Casas, about their research. The Maloy Lab focuses on the genetics and physiology of Salmonella and bacteriophage that infect Salmonella. Maloy and his students use a combination of genetic, molecular, biochemical, and genomic approaches to answer questions about the uptake of DNA from bacteriophage, transfer of genes between bacteria and phage, and the evolution of pathogenesis.

Save the Oysters - Part 2 (MWV10)

Since the introduction of MSX and Dermo in the 1950s, two infectious diseases that played a large role in the decline the Chesapeake Bays oyster population, several oyster hatcheries along the Eastern seaboard are working with scientists across many fields to develop innovative restoration programs. One idea is to introduce a non-native oyster from China called Crassostrea ariakensis.

ReGenesis (MWV8)

 

 

ReGenesis is an award winning science drama produced by Toronto's Shaftesbury Films that centers on the fictitious North American Biotechnology Advisory Commission. NorBAC's special operations team, headed by the brilliant but unpredictable Molecular Biologist Dr. David Sandstrm (Peter Outerbridge) and supported by a cast of forensic specialists and CIA operatives, investigates new strains of disease, genetically modified bacteria, and potential bioterror threats or agents. In essence, the show is about microbial forensics and the lives of the people who work in and around the lab.
