Discovery of first motor with revolution motion in a virus-killing bacteria advances nanotechnology (press release)

Scientists have cracked a 35-year-old mystery about the workings of the natural motors that are serving as models for development of a futuristic genre of synthetic nanomotors that pump therapeutic DNA, RNA or drugs into individual diseased cells. Their report revealing the innermost mechanisms ... Read More

Freiburg Biologists Study Unicellular Organisms that Occasionally Poison Themselves with a Toxin

The cyanobacterium Synechocystis produces toxins that often lead to its own demise. The biologists Stefan Kopfmann and Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Hess from the University of Freiburg have determined the logic governing this mechanism. The cyanobacterium Synechocystis produces several toxins. However, mo... Read More

Engineering adenoviruses for gene therapy

This is a movie by David Bella, Ph.D., at the University of Glasgow Centre for Virus Research showing the results of an analysis of Adenovirus binding to blood coagulation factor X, performed in collaboration with Professor Andrew H Baker in the University of Glasgow.

The animation was creat... Read More

Episode 2: Viral Videos from the YouTube series MicroMinutes

Without microbiology there would be no viral videos, because, after all, without microbiology there would be no viruses! Sure, there could be "voluminous views videos" but a term like that doesn't have the same visceral impact as a "viral video".

This episode describes viral replication in a... Read More

Video Offers Glimpse of Biosafety Level 4 Lab

Security concerns at laboratories doing research on infectious diseases mean that most of us will never get a look at the inner workings of such labs, the most secure designated as Biosafety Level 4 (BSL-4). But because its BSL-4 lab is not yet operational, the National Emerging Infectious Disea... Read More

Threading the NEIDL - Inside a BSL-4 Lab (MWV 68)

Constructed in 2009 in the highly populated South End neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts, the National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratories (NEIDL) facility contains labs that operate at biosafety levels 2, 3 and 4. Due to its location the NEIDL has faced a raft of legal and regulator... Read More

Insect wings shred bacteria to pieces

The veined wing of the clanger cicada kills bacteria solely through its physical structure — one of the first natural surfaces found to do so. An international team of biophysicists has now come up with a detailed model of how this defence works on the nanoscale. The results are published in the... Read More

Fungi: Death Becomes Them - CrashCourse Biology #39 (video)

Death is what fungi are all about. By feasting on the deceased remains of almost all organisms on the planet, converting the organic matter back into soil from which new life will spring, they perform perhaps the most vital function in the global food web. Fungi, which thrive on death, make all ... Read More

Cellular alchemy caught in action

One of the most critical biological advances in the past decade was the discovery that the introduction of four simple genetic factors can turn a fully mature adult cell back into an embryonic-like state, a process called reprogramming.

MWV Episode 67 - The Secret Language of Bacteria

No bacterium lives alone – it is constantly encountering members of its own species as well as other kinds of bacteria and diverse organisms like viruses, fungi, plants and animals. To navigate a complex world, microbes use chemical signals to sense and communicate with one another... Read More

Flu Attack! How A Virus Invades Your Body (video)

When you get the flu, viruses turn your cells into tiny factories that help spread the disease. In this animation, NPR's Robert Krulwich and medical animator David Bolinsky explain how a flu virus can trick a single cell into making a million more viruses.

See and hear the rest of the story o... Read More
