A new plant-bacterial symbiotic mechanism promising for crop applications

...searchers sequenced (3) the genes of two bacterial strains of Bradyrhizobium, ORS278 and BTAi1, in order to find out their genetic make-up and identify the genes involved in this rather special form of symbiosis. These bacteria were found to have no nod genes, usually essential for nodulation. Bradyrhizobium...

Could fungal collection hold the key to new life-saving drugs?

...cal drugs to fight cancers, diseases and resistant strains of infections such as MRSA.” SIDR brings together scientists from different disciplines to focus on drug discovery. They have developed test systems to detect biological activity in samples of natural products that could lead to new medicinal prod...

Bacteria ferry nanoparticles into cells for early diagnosis, treatment

...ffectively for a wide range of needs." Harmless strains of bacteria could be used as vehicles, harnessing bacteria's natural ability to penetrate cells and their nuclei, Bashir said. "For gene therapy, a big obstacle has been finding ways to transport the therapeutic DNA molecule through the nuclear me...

A mushroom-based biofactory also would not require expensive infrastructure set up by major drug companies, he added....

How plague-causing bacteria disarm host defense

...ase, including means to fight antibiotic-resistant strains of Yersinia that could be used in biological warfare, according to Navarro. The genus Yersinia includes three species of bacteria that are pathogenic to humans: Y. pestis is perhaps the most infamous, being responsible for the bubonic plague (al...

Survival of the rarest: Fruit flies shed light on the evolution of behavior

...a population that is already immune to more common strains of the virus. In this case, flies carry one of two versions of the foraging gene (either the "rover" or "sitter" type). Rover larvae move around more than sitter larvae while feeding and they are also more likely to explore new food patches than sitt...

New host species for avian influenza identified

An eight-year surveillance study, which included more than 36,000 wild migratory birds tested for low pathogenic avian influenza, details new data on host species, prevalence, and temporal and geographical variation of avian influenza ...

Sleepless for science: Flies show link between sleep, immune system in Stanford study

...ven better way would be to turn to established fly strains isolated decades ago that possess disruptions in their genes controlling circadian rhythm. In this case, these mutant flies could be kept under exactly the same light and temperature conditions as the normal flies. They looked at flies that were d...
