If you are lucky enough to be still alive and working in 2050... How might the clinical microbiology laboratory have changed by that time? Nobody can accurately predict the future, but here are my personal thoughts... Read More
I thought this area of bryostatin study might spark your interest. It has the potential to treat cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. Whether looking at the way the compound is formed in nature or the challenge of synthesizing the compound is fascinating.

Soil microorganisms carry out key processes for life on our planet, including cycling of carbon and other nutrients and supporting growth of plants. However, there is poor molecular-level understanding of their functional roles in ecosystem stability and responses to environmental perturbations.... Read More

The enzymes that make copies of the DNA or RNA genomes of viruses – nucleic acid polymerases – can be placed into two broad categories depending on whether or not they require a primer, a short piece of DNA or RNA, to get going. The structure of the primer-independent RNA polymerase of hepatitis... Read More
(Millbrook, NY) Machine learning can pinpoint rodent species that harbor diseases and geographic hotspots vulnerable to new parasites and pathogens. So reports a new study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences led by Barbara A. Han, a disease ecologist at the Cary Institute of E... Read More
Microbes are excellent at adapting to stressful situations, which is part of the reason antibiotic resistance is a problem today. Constant exposure to antimicrobials such as triclosan have selected for resistant strains, rendering the compound ineffective. This is why the FDA recently banned t... Read More
Researchers report they have used the Pathogen Box to identify a novel, highly potent antifungal agent with activity against two of the most common fungal pathogens of humans. Read More
The great folks at "The People Behind the Science" interviewed me over Skype in late July, and the interview has just been released as a podcast. I discuss my path through science, my thoughts on teaching, research at undergraduate institution, and how to motivate and inspire students to strive... Read More
How do bacterial proteins destined for export move from inside to outside the cell? As mBiosphere readers may know, there are a number of secretion systems that bacteria use to move materials from inside the cell to outside the cell. Some of these systems, such as the Sec secretion system, are c... Read More
In this episode of Virus Watch, I show how to do my favorite assay in all of virology - the plaque assay.
The general program for the 2015 American Society of Microbiology meeting in New Orleans is out, and registration is now open. The sessions look incredible, and I've listed them below as I imagine they might resonate with many of the readers of this blog. The bolded sessions look particularly in... Read More

In an attempt to preserve and defend the good name of the salmon fished in his state, Senator Warren Magnuson (D-WA), introduced in 1969 a bill in the US Senate proposing to change the name of Salmonella to the more inoccuous sounding Sanella. In some circles it may seem comforting to th... Read More
We would like to know the experience when you work with your proteins (recombinant protein, native protein, lysate etc.), no matter it is success or failure. Did you get on well with the protein or still “fight” with it? Tell us your story. But, no, no, no, we don’t want to hear your presentatio... Read More
