Latest Mycoplasma genitalium Stories
A team led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) has discovered an unusual bacterial protein that attaches to virtually any antibody and prevents it from binding to its target.
LA JOLLA, Calif., Feb.
Mycoplasma Genitalium is becoming one of the most common STD's in the United States.
In what is being called "a breakthrough effort for computational biology," researchers from a pair of US universities have successfully completed a software model of an organism's entire lifespan.
ROCKVILLE, Md. and SAN DIEGO, May 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Researchers at the J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI), a not-for-profit genomic research organization, published results today describing the successful construction of the first self-replicating, synthetic bacterial cell.
On Friday, controversial biologist Dr Craig Venter said that the creation of artificial life was mere months from taking place.
New methods allow for the rapid engineering of bacterial chromosomes and the creation of extensively modified bacterial species; should also play key role in boot up of synthetic cell ROCKVILLE, Md., Aug. 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Researchers at the J.
Advance Allows for More Efficient Construction of Synthetic Genomes ROCKVILLE, Md., Dec. 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Researchers at the J.
Scientists have taken a major step toward creating the first ever artificial life form by synthetically reproducing the DNA of a bacteria, according to a study published today in the journal Science.
The smallest collection of genes ever found for a cellular organism comes from tiny symbiotic bacteria that live inside special cells inside a small insect.
Mycoplasma genitalium is a small parasitic bacterium that lives on the ciliated epithelial cells of the primate genital and respiratory tracts. It is the smallest known free-living bacterium. Up until 2002 it was also considered to be the organism with the smallest genome. M. genitalium was isolated in 1980 from urethral specimens of two male patients with non-gonococcal urethritis. Infection is fairly common and can be transmitted between partners during unprotected sex. It can be treated...
