Breaking down the microbiology world one bite at a time

Bitter-sweet resistance

Antibiotic resistance has been the hot topic of the current century. Recent research has shown that microbial interactions can modulate the susceptibility of bacteria to antibiotics.

Geometry vs Bacteria and Fungi… Who will win?

Scientists already know that the soil is full of microorganisms, and that these microorganisms need to adapt and act fast to survive in this complex environment. Learn here how space and geometry can influence bacterial and fungal growth.

Conversations with microbes

Can scientists predict composition of a microbial community for a specific habitat? Researchers have shown that by using mathematical models and simulations, interactions amongst various microbes can be estimated relatively accurately.

Life After Death: Using the Human Microbiome as a Forensics Tool

We are never alone…even in the moment of death. Our microbiomes stay with us until the last second. Interestingly enough, the moment we die, our “microbial clocks” start ticking! Learn more about this unique clock and how it can help forensic scientists solve cases in the future.

Keeping an eye for the gut microbiota!

The gut microbiota is full of surprises! Already proven to be linked with our immunity and metabolism disorders such as obesity or diabetes, it seems like it could also affect our eyes…
