Bacteria have evolved resistance to every known class of antibiotic, creating an urgent need for methods to identify new antibiotics that work by different mechanisms. We have developed a new approach to antibiotic discovery that provides a short cut for identifying antibacterial molecules and ... Read More
The Amazon river is the largest river in the world. It drains the entire Amazon rainforest, sending leftover nutrients, detritus, and minerals from the South American jungle out into the tropical Atlantic ocean. This runoff forms a freshwater plume, hundreds of miles across, that profoundly affe... Read More

Several African nations could strike a major blow against malaria by sacrificing the efficacy of some older drugs. Can they make it work?
It is September in southeastern Mali, and Louka Coulibaly is standing in the shade of a squat, concrete building, giving instructions to a dozen men and wo... Read More
Tiny electrical wires protrude from some bacteria and contribute to rock and dirt formation. Researchers studying the protein that makes up one such wire have determined the protein's structure. The finding is important to such diverse fields as producing energy, recycling Earth's carbon and min... Read More

This video is presenting some of the most common myths related to "Chickenpox" in the Pakistani society. It's a scene from the daily life showing how people deal with this disease. This video is giving a message to the scientists in particular and society in general why eradication of certain in... Read More
Purdue University researchers have developed a laser sensor that can identify Salmonella bacteria grown from food samples about three times faster than conventional detection methods.
Known as BARDOT (pronounced bar-DOH'), the machine scans bacteria colonies and generates a distinct black and... Read More
MY GLOBAL VIDEO CHALLENGE (HOW MY SCIENCE AFFECTS MY COMMUNITY.)
Sometimes I wonder why diseases like typhoid fever and malaria lingers in West Africa and antibiotic as well as anti-malaria usage rises to resistant levels, until I met this community during one of my outreach trips. It was unima... Read More
A pesar de los beneficios que suponen las vacunas, muchas personas desconocen cómo funcionan e incluso desconfían de su acción. Las vacunas siempre son más seguras que la propia enfermedad de la que protegen. Algunas enfermedades infecciosas no tienen un tratamiento efectivo y las vacunas son la... Read More
Using a new technique to track the swimming motion of a single bacterium, researchers have discovered that the movement of the bacterium’s body — not just thrust from the flagellum — allow movement through fluids. The finding could shed new light on the evolution of cell body shape.

Panelists discuss their preliminary results from a survey of 192 Oakland University undergraduate female students that revealed that although a vast majority of them are aware of the HPV vaccine, about 54% are not vaccinated. This indicates a lack of understanding about the consequences of an HP... Read More
