"The Amazing Adventures of the Virologists” Part One - Vaccines _ 6

"Hivi and his team of viruses (Ebola, Pox,..etc) believe they can win the battle, but the Virologists (who are real famous professors) beat them. However, new viruses pop-up, it will be a long battle. This makes the story very interesting and ever so engaging."

Oregon geologist says Curiosity's images show Earth-like soils on Mars

Soil deep in a crater dating to some 3.7 billion years ago contains evidence that Mars was once much warmer and wetter, says University of Oregon geologist Gregory Retallack, based on images and data captured by the rover Curiosity.

NASA rovers have shown Martian landscapes littered with loos... Read More

Happy Luxmas 2015!

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

Life Under the Microscope: The Year’s Best Biology Close-Ups

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

Microbiology and Peep Science at Easter?

Easter in the United States has become a holiday pretty much about high fructose corn syrup. To that end, here is a description of "Peep Science," using those sugary creatures that inhabit this time of year. In addition is a video that links "Peep Science" and microbiology! Read More

TED Talk: A forgotten Space Age technology could change how we grow food

Dr. Lisa Dyson is developing a way to sustainable produce agriculture using technology developed in the 1960's for space travel. Using carbon dioxide, hydrogen from water, and microbes called hydrogenotrophs, the "closed loop" carbon cycle can create carbon-rich crops. This technology has the po... Read More

A Cinematic Approach to Antibiotic Resistance

In a creative stroke inspired by Hollywood wizardry, Harvard scientists have designed a simple way to observe how bacteria move as they become impervious to drugs. The experiments are thought to provide the first large-scale glimpse of the maneuvers of bacteria as they encounter increasingly hig... Read More

ASM Live 2015 - Prevalence of Streptococcus mutans serotype k in American School Children #asm2015

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.


Stephanie Momeni, University o... Read More

Toxic Bacteria Detection - Bang Goes The Theory (video)

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

Modeling and predictive microbiology: Interview with An Vermeulen (Video)

An Vermeulen works at the Laboratory of Food Microbiology and Food Preservation of Ghent University. She is an industrial liaison officer for the laboratory as well as for the Flemish Cluster Predictive Microbiology in Foods, a cooperation between KULeuven and UGent, to improve the knowledge on ...

Uehling ASM Global Video Challenge: Is it worthwhile to study non-pathogenic environmental microbes?

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

Let It (Microbially) Snow...

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

Freshman Biology Creative Projects

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

Animals (and Plants) in a Microbial World

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

Nothing to Sneeze At

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

Cancer Survivor Saved by Measles Virus Raises Funds for Expanded Trial

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

Supercomputer Modelling of a Complete Human Viral Pathogen: Poliovirus (Polio virus)

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
