Phage therapy uses bacterial viruses (bacteriophages) to treat bacterial infections and is widely being recognized as an alternative to antibiotics. Here is the latest research.
Biofilm formation is a key virulence factor for a wide range of microorganisms that cause chronic infections.Here is the latest research on biofilm and infectious diseases.
CRISPR-Cas system enables the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. This feed focuses on the application of CRISPR-Cas system in high-throughput genome-wide screens to identify genes that may confer drug resistance.
Microbes in the gut communicate with the central nervous system (CNS) via at least three parallel and interacting channels including endocrine, nervous, and immune signaling. Here is the latest research on the brain-gut-microbiome axis.
Gut microbiota has been implicated in neurodevelopment, neuroinflammatory responses, and neurological disorders. Here is the latest research on the role of gut microbiota in movement disorders.
The gut microbiota has been implicated in neurodevelopment, neuroinflammatory responses, and neurological disorders. Here is the latest research on the role of the gut microbiota in movement disorders.
The feed focuses on the emerging role of Gut Microbiota, also known as the gastrointestinal microbiome, in Type 2 Diabetes. Deficiency in gut microbiota has been linked to type 2 diabetes.
Horizontal gene transfer is a mechanism in which genetic material is transmitted from one organism to another organism. This process is used by bacteria to acquire antibiotic resistance genes and is important for bacterial evolution. Discover the latest research on horizontal gene transfer here.
This feed focuses on small molecules produced by the human microbiota. Several small molecules representing each of the major metabolic classes have been identified and implicated in several biological processes including modulation of the immune system and antibiosis. Here is the latest research.
Infectious Disease Sequencing is a emerging field due to low-cost massively parallel sequencing and allows researchers to monitor outbreaks of infectious pathogens. Discover the latest research on Infectious Disease Sequencing here.
MRSA Infections or Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections are difficult to treat due to resistance to the beta-lactam family of antibiotics. MRSA infections are commonly acquired in hospitals. Discover the latest research on MRSA Infections here.
The human microbiota is composed of all microorganisms that reside inside and on the human body. This feed focuses on the collective genomes of all these microorganisms. Here is the latest research.
