Trinity immunologists find new ways to beat the 'bad guys'

Vaccines are like pathogen imposters - they mimic these 'bad guys' in order to provoke a response from our immune systems, remove the invader and begin the healing process.

One of the key components in a vaccine is an adjuvant, which serves to enhance our body's immune response to vaccination... Read More

Dawn of the Cyborg Bacteria (video)

In a basement laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania, two roboticists have harnessed the innate sensing, swimming, and swarming abilities of bacteria to power microscopic robots. Even though their work sounds like the prologue to a dark science fiction film, Ph.D. students Elizabeth Beatti... Read More

A recent and effective treatment to eradicate this condition is known as “fecal material transplant” (FMT), where a healthy human will donate a sam... Read More

See how they grow on the nanoscale: Monitoring single bacteria without a microscope

With an invention that can be made from some of the same parts used in CD players, University of Michigan researchers have developed a way to measure the growth and drug susceptibility of individual bacterial cells without the use of a microscope.

The new biosensor promises to speed treatment... Read More

Here's What Would Really Happen If You Stopped Bathing

You've probably gone a few days without showering -- maybe a week. But let's say you don't bathe for days on end -- as in you use no soap, no water, no nothing.

What would happen?

Cancer fighter found in marine microbes

A chemical compound made from a type of bacteria discovered in the Florida Keys appears to be effective in fighting colon cancer in preclinical experiments.

The compound—known as largazole because it was first found near Key Largo—inhibits human cancer cell growth in cultures and rodent model... Read More

Green Alga Found to Prey on Bacteria, Bolstering Endosymbiotic Theory

A green alga with throat- and stomach-like structures can swallow and digest bacteria when deprived of light, further bolstering Lynn Margulis’s widely accepted idea that the origin of the plant-powering chloroplast was a fortuitous bout of indigestion.

Termed “Endosymbiotic Theory“, the idea... Read More

The Coming Crisis in Antibiotics

An interesting TED talk about antibiotic resistant bacteria.

Antibiotic drugs save lives. But we simply use them too much — and often for non-lifesaving purposes, like treating the flu and even raising cheaper chickens. The result, says researcher Ramanan Laxminarayan, is that the drugs will... Read More

Phage 'cocktail' wipes out 99 percent of E. coli in meat, spinach

Treating food products with select bacteriophages - viruses that target and kill bacteria - could significantly reduce concentrations of E. coli, a Purdue University study shows.

An injection of bacteriophages - also known informally as "phages" - nearly eradicated a toxin-producing strain of... Read More
