Jonathan Eisen wants to make a field guide for microbes. Eisen, who is a professor at the University of California at Davis, likens what he wants to create to the field guides that exist for birds. With DNA sequencing and better tools, Eisen thinks we can map the diversity of microbes on humans ... Read More

Scientists from California and Hong Kong genetically engineered bacterial cells so that they spontaneously grow in concentric rings. The number of rings can be controlled by altering expression of a single gene. They say the findings could shed light on the complex patterning that takes place du... Read More
