Does the hologenome address the whole picture?

How do we define the genetic makeup of an individual? Is it the genetic material found in each cell of that individual (that’s not entirely accurate; mutations and recombinatorial differences can lead to multiple genomes in one individual). And what about the genes carried by our microbiome? The... Read More

Molecular Analysis and Expression of bap Gene in Biofilm-Forming Multi-Drug-Resistant Acinetobacter baumannii. Reports of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology 2016

Abstract

Background: Acinetobacter baumannii is commonly resistant to nearly all antibiotics due to presence of antibiotic resistance genes and biofilm formation. In this study we determined the presence of certain antibiotic-resistance genes associated with biofilm production and the influen... Read More

Yum! Digesting ASM Resources for Food Microbiology

Food-related microbiology can be one of the most fun - or least fun - ways to interact with microbes. In the ‘most fun’ category, scientists and non-scientists alike can use microbes to create delicious foods from fermentative processes; in the ‘least fun’ category, scientists and non-scientists...

Age of the Microzoo

In 3500 BCE, Egyptian rulers built a menagerie of exotic creatures within the ancient capital of Hierakonpolis. Archaeologists have found 112 animal skeletons at this site: the first zoo on Earth. But from this earliest exhibition of the natural world through today’s most famous animal displays,... Read More

ASM Announces Tools to Help Authors and Reviewers Alike

Communication of experimental results via publishing is one of the most important steps of the scientific method; if you don’t share your results, how will knowledge within a field grow? A well-written article contextualizes the author’s data into a broader scientific landscape, which allows rea... Read More

A minimal cell operating system

If the DNA sequence of a cell is like the operating system of a computer, then the smallest cellular OS has just been written. Called Syn3.0, it encodes everything needed to make a viable, autonomously replicating cell.

Mycoplasma is a genus of bacteria that are the smallest known free-living... Read More

Virus Watch: How Mosquitoes Spread Viruses

In this episode of Virus Watch, I explain how mosquitoes spread viruses. We’ll look at how a mosquito finds a host, how it finds a blood vessel, and how it delivers viruses to a new host. Don’t blame mosquitoes for viral diseases: it’s not their fault!

Natural predatory bacteria could combat drug resistance problem

While bacteria have been evolving for 3.5 billion years, mammals have evolved with bacteria for only 2.5 million years. Thus, it's not that surprising that humans appear to be losing the war on antibiotic resistance.
The issue of multidrug-resistance and the lack of antibiotics in the developme... Read More

Reconstructing a lichen's molecular architecture

Chemist Pieter Dorrestein’s laboratory group has been developing mass spectrometry methods to look at what molecules are produced by microbes interacting in a petri dish. But recently, the group jumped out of the dish and into the dirt—to analyze a soil-dwelling lichen and discover how the molec... Read More

Zika virus placental infection differs in maternal- and fetal-derived tissues
