The fact of using antibiotics in aquaculture has immersed a multiresistance in pathogenic bacteria. This is why a spare solution had to be found which is the probiotics. So for that, I isolated lactic bacteria (lactobacilles) from the intestine of a pelagic fish (sardina pilchardus) and did a lo... Read More
In this episode of Virus Watch, I show how to do my favorite assay in all of virology - the plaque assay.

In short, using Immunohistochemistry is invaluable when detecting antigens that can cause infectious diseases and helping to diagnose and get rid of cancer. Contact Creative Bioarray for your IHC needs today.
An otherwise balanced review of selected aspects of Ebolavirus transmission falls apart when the authors hypothesize that ‘Ebola viruses have the potential to be respiratory pathogens with primary respiratory spread.’
The idea that Ebolavirus might become transmitted by the respiratory route ... Read More
I love to share my work,the simplicity in Happiness.I am sharing it here because i know my fellow microbiologist also admire this visual treats in their labs. http://adeebblog.blogspot.in/ Read More
Because viruses must bind to cell surface molecules to initiate replication, the use of soluble receptors to block virus infection has long been an attractive therapeutic option. Soluble receptors have been developed that block infection with rhinoviruses and HIV-1, but these have not been licen... Read More
Just like you and me, bacteria have ‘favorite’ foods – though in the case of bacteria, 'favorite' translates to those which are energetically favorable or most accessible. Different bacteria have different preferences, based on their environments and the neighboring microbes that compete for or ... Read More
Dear water-based life forms:
It is 24 degrees in Overland Park, Kansas and I am looking at a slide labeled "Giardia lamblia", part of a museum exhibit on water and human (over) use of water.
I see a greenish lump. I don't kno... Read More
As part of its Microbiology of the Built Environment initiative, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation started funding projects a few years ago that touched on the interaction of microbiology with architecture, buildings or, in the case of Curtis Huttenhower, PhD, an associate professor of computationa...

While Hollywood loves to imagine humans encountering all manner of horrific monsters in the depths of space, the greatest threat to a long-term, manned space mission may not come with tentacles, or extra mouths, or an insatiable love for human flesh. It may, in fact, be the invisible microbes t... Read More
Microbiome research has revealed that there are good guy and bad guy bacteria living together in complex communities on our skin, in our mouths, throughout our guts and pretty much everywhere in between. But what do you call a good guy bacterium that is aiding and abetting a disease culprit?

Scientists from Kyoto Institute of Technology (Japan) found a species of bacteria that can grow on polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and treat it as the energy and carbon source, providing a biologic way to break down plastics. Read More
Methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) constitutes approximately 50% of clinical S. aureus isolates and is most commonly the result of production of a mutated pencillin-binding protein, PBP2a, which is able to carry out essential cell wall synthesis functions while maintaining a low-affinity for...
