Microbial Genetics deals with the genotype and phenotype of microbial species. It studies how genes are organized and regulated in microbes.
New Way That Bacteria Evolve Into Something That Can Make You SickResearchers of the Michael G. DeGroote Institute for Infectious Disease Research have discovered a new way that bacteria evolve into something that can make you sick.
DNA From The DeepWhat kinds of microbes live beneath the surface of the open ocean? What are they doing down there?
New Method To Analyze Marine Microbe DNAScientists have proven a new approach of obtaining genetic codes of ocean microbes, based on the analysis of individual unicellular organisms.
DNA Patterns Of MicrobesThe genomes or DNA of microbes contain defined DNA patterns called genome signatures.
Genome Mapped For Mite-borne TyphusResearchers at Uppsala University, in collaboration with a Korean research team, have mapped and analyzed the genome for mite-borne typhus.
Using the genomic shortcut to predict bacterial behaviorThe researchers discovered that the parasitic bacterium has the standard large circular chromosome plus two unexpected plasmids, small circular pieces of DNA that can replicate on their own.
Will the plague pathogen become resistant to antibiotics?A small piece of DNA that helps bacteria commonly found in US meat and poultry resist several antibiotics has also been found in the plague bacillus Yersinia pestis
Scientists discover gene that controls speed of tuberculosis developmentScientists at the MUHC have discovered a gene that controls the speed at which patients develop tuberculosis-the first time such a gene has been discovered for this disease.
Resistance genes in our food supplyCould the food we eat be contributing to the continuing rise of antibiotic-resistant infections?
Scientists discover the gene that causes the smell of the earth and leads camels to waterScientists at the John Innes Centre, Norwich have discovered the gene that gives freshly turned soil its distinctive smell.
Researchers use dirt to stay one step ahead of antibiotic resistanceDirt may be a key to how bacteria that infect humans develop a resistance to antibiotic drugs
Evolution of mosaic operons by horizontal gene transfer and gene displacement in situShuffling and disruption of operons and horizontal gene transfer are major contributions to the new, dynamic view of prokaryotic evolution.
Evolution of ribonuclease H genes in prokaryotes to avoid inheritance of redundant genesThe authors analyzed the molecular evolution of the ribonuclease H (RNase H) family in prokaryotes and used the results to examine the implications of functional redundancy for gene evolution.
Identification of gene targets against dormant phase Mycobacterium tuberculosis infectionsA novel and comprehensive meta-analysis of the M. tuberculosis gene expression and gene disruption microarray data sets is presented.
Typhoid carriers: a Salmonella gene mutation?Salmonella enterica causes approximately 16 million cases of typhoid fever worldwide, killing around 500,000 per year.
Understanding epidemics of antibiotic-resistant EnterococciAntibiotic resistance in bacteria, in particular Vancomycin resistance in enterococci, is a growing problem in hospitals.
Are bacteria turning our own weapons against us?Scientists have identified what may be a completely new way in which bacteria defend themselves against their hosts.
Mortality rate is twice as high in patients with pneumonia caused by highly resistant bacteriaPatients suffering from hospital-acquired pneumonia caused by a type of bacteria that is highly resistant to virtually all antibiotics are twice as likely to die as patients infected with other, less resistant bacteria
Antibiotic Resistance and Gene TransferThe way antibiotic resistance spreads and possible problems from genes transferring have been identified by researchers
Drug resistant hospital bugs also learning to beat disinfectant, say scientistsDangerous multi-drug-resistant bacteria are also developing immunity to hospital disinfectants and antiseptics, according to new research
