"Some of the most impactful papers have been those describing resources," says Microbiology Resource Announcements EIC Irene Newton. Here, we introduce our Microbiology Resource of the Month, highlighting the ZetaHunter software made available by Clara Chan's lab at University of Delaware.
A new mBio article reports on a feature of C. auris that may contribute to its ability to cause serious disease: its ability to evade the innate immune system.
By day, Dr. Jeanne Jordan is a clinical virologist working in the School of Public Health at the George Washington University. But for 8 hours each month, she dons a safari-style vest to answer questions in the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History’s newest exhibit, Outbreak: Epidemics in a Connected World. Learn about her science outreach experience in our interview.
What's hot in the microbial sciences? ASM summarizes microbiology news and reports in Microbial Minutes, a biweekly news roundup. This week: plants fix atmospheric nitrogen (with the help of microbes), the gut microbiome influences rotavirus vaccine efficacy, and a specific strain of Wolbachia blocks viral transmission in mosquitos - plus updates on measles and Florida's red tide!
Helicobacter pylori can survive the harsh environment of the stomach, where it uses its urease enzyme to neutralize stomach acid. A new Journal of Bacteriology study reports that urease plays double duty for the bacterium, and can also act as an antioxidant against reactive oxygen species.
