Kristen Kusek, Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard Harvard team lays the foundation for using bacterial biofilms for production of new self-healing materials and bioprocessing technologies For most people biofilms conjure up images of slippery stones in a streambed and dirty drains. While there are plenty of "bad" biofilms around – they even cause pesky dental plaque and a host of other more serious medical problems – a team at the Wyss Institute for...

Studying Virus-Host Interactions In The Oxygen-Starved Ocean
2014-09-17 03:02:18

JGI For multicellular life—plants and animals—to thrive in the oceans, there must be enough dissolved oxygen in the water. In certain coastal areas, extreme oxygen-starvation produces “dead zones” that decimate marine fisheries and destroy food web structure. As dissolved oxygen levels decline, energy is increasingly diverted away from multicellular life into microbial community metabolism resulting in impacts on the ecology and biogeochemistry of the ocean. Over the past 50...

cicada

John McCutcheon, The University of Montana Two is company, three is a crowd. But in the case of the cicada, that’s a good thing. Until a recent discovery by a University of Montana research lab, it was thought that cicadas had a symbiotic relationship with two important bacteria that live within the cells of its body. Since the insect eats a simple diet consisting solely of plant sap, it relies on these bacteria to produce the nutrients it needs for survival. In exchange, those two...

cravings and bacteria

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Our bodies play host to millions of bacteria. In fact, they outnumber our own cells by about 100-fold. And yet, we hold the notion that we are in charge of our own lives, not the bacteria that has just hitched a ride. A new study, published in BioEssays, tells a different story. The findings reveal that the bacteria within our bodies may very well be affecting our cravings and our moods to ensure that we eat what they want. The...

Preemies' Gut Bacteria May Depend More On Gestational Age Than Environmental Factors
2014-08-13 03:08:27

By Elizabethe Holland Durando, Washington University School of Medicine Scientists believe babies are born with digestive systems containing few or no bacteria. Their guts then quickly become colonized by microbes — good and bad — as they nurse or take bottles, receive medication and even as they are passed from one adoring relative to another. However, in infants born prematurely, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have found that the population...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online It has been evident for a while that men and women react to diet differently. Men lose weight easier than women, men need more calories than women because of muscle mass, and there are even differences in eating styles. Now, a new study led by The University of Texas at Austin reveals that even our gut microbes react differently to our diet, even if that diet is exactly the same. The findings, published in Nature Communication,...
