Wet mount examination of a stool specimen showing 2 eggs of the parasitic worm Hookworm. The eggs contain larva that are moving inside the egg and appear to be ready to hatch. Hookworm adult worm lays eggs that have a segmented ovum having 4-8 blastomeres and are not bile stained. Video captured... Read More
Presenters discuss prevalence of a recently discovered serotype of oral bacterium, with a possible link to a number of systemic diseases that was found for the first time in a small cohort of African-American schoolchildren in a southwest Alabama town.

Life is pretty interesting, and at the microscopic scale, it can also be beautiful, strange, intriguing, frightening and gross. The winning photos and videos from this year’s Olympus BioScapes competition span the whole range.
From rat brains to butter daisies to weevils and barnacle appendag... Read More
My Global Video Challenge submission showcasing how my personal life has empowered my dissertational research. The mythbuster that I focus on is the hospital environment as an unexpected reservoir of pathogens that can lead to hospital-associated infections (HAIs) in the immunocomprised, the e... Read More
In this blogpost, I celebrate the microbiological season with some microbial merriment: ice nucleation bacteria, drawing with reporter gene bacteria, and painting with bioluminescent microbes. Every day is Luxmas to me! Read More
Follow the reconstruction and simulation of poliovirus using the BlueGene/Q supercomputer at the Victorian Life Sciences Computation Initiative. The poliovirus model is being used as a basis for understanding antiviral drugs, virus infection and helps us to learn how to model related viruses suc... Read More
Dr Toby Jenkins talks about toxic bacteria and how to detect that using a technology within bandages. Taken from Bang Goes The Theory Series 7. Read More
This is my submission for the global video challenge. I study fungal bacterial interactions, and Im currently using microbes isolated from soil around plant roots. The aim of the larger supporting research framework is to understand the structure and function of beneficial microbial communities ... Read More

I am a big believer that different pedagogical approaches can "reach" different students. In most of my classes, I give students an optional assignment: come up with a creative project that explores some aspect of class. This takes several steps. First, I make the students come up with an ide... Read More
Although we all know that sneezes and coughs transmit infections, little research had been done to model how they work. To address this knowledge gap, Lydia Bourouiba and John Bush of MIT’s Applied Mathematics Lab used high speed cameras and fluid mechanics to reveal why we’ve grossly underestim... Read More
In this blog post (and fourth "Mu-Tube" video), I explore the idea that all animals and plants have evolved as part of a microbial world, and thus microbes are a part of us. I do this by having my undergraduate students explore two recently publications by Dr. Margaret McFall-Ngai,and recording... Read More
After battling blood cancer for 10 years, Stacy Erholtz has no signs of the disease, thanks to an experimental treatment that used an engineered version of the measles virus.
Now, a year after finishing her treatment, the 50-year-old mother of three is transitioning from patient to advocate, ... Read More

I made this video in October of 2015, with my Biology 350 Microbiology students at the University of Puget Sound. A drop of Pseudomonas syringae expressing ice nucleation protein hits supercooled pure water, and fun results. This is the way that Snomax works to commercially generate snow, inci... Read More
As part of my freshman writing seminar in the Fall of 2014, I was fortunate to have a number of fascinating experts in symbioses and parasitism be willing to "televisit" my students. Here is Dr. Rob Dunn of North Carolina State University, discussing his laboratory's work with Demodex face mite... Read More
An advanced protective suit for health care workers who treat Ebola patients, devised by a Johns Hopkins team, is one of the first five awardees in a federal funding contest aimed at quickly devising new tools to combat the deadly disease.
The Johns Hopkins prototype is designed to do a bette... Read More
At first glance, the monkeys being studied by University of California, Davis researchers may look like they’re part of a zoo exhibit, but these primates may soon hold the key to preventing pregnant women from passing the Zika virus to their unborn babies.
