Microbial Genetics deals with the genotype and phenotype of microbial species. It studies how genes are organized and regulated in microbes.
Microbial Genetics Articles
Researchers 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.
What kinds of microbes live beneath the surface of the open ocean? What are they doing down there?
Scientists have proven a new approach of obtaining genetic codes of ocean microbes, based on the analysis of individual unicellular organisms.
The genomes or DNA of microbes contain defined DNA patterns called genome signatures.
Researchers at Uppsala University, in collaboration with a Korean research team, have mapped and analyzed the genome for mite-borne typhus.
The 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.
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 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.
Could the food we eat be contributing to the continuing rise of antibiotic-resistant infections?
Scientists at the John Innes Centre, Norwich have discovered the gene that gives freshly turned soil its distinctive smell.
Dirt may be a key to how bacteria that infect humans develop a resistance to antibiotic drugs
Shuffling and disruption of operons and horizontal gene transfer are major contributions to the new, dynamic view of prokaryotic evolution.
The 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.
A novel and comprehensive meta-analysis of the M. tuberculosis gene expression and gene disruption microarray data sets is presented.
Salmonella enterica causes approximately 16 million cases of typhoid fever worldwide, killing around 500,000 per year.
Antibiotic resistance in bacteria, in particular Vancomycin resistance in enterococci, is a growing problem in hospitals.
Scientists have identified what may be a completely new way in which bacteria defend themselves against their hosts.
Patients 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
The way antibiotic resistance spreads and possible problems from genes transferring have been identified by researchers
Dangerous multi-drug-resistant bacteria are also developing immunity to hospital disinfectants and antiseptics, according to new research
