Table of Contents

Battling Biofilms

The war is against bacterial colonies that cause some of the most tenacious infections known.  The weapon is knowledge of the enemy’s communication system.

 

An Endangered Species in the Stomach

Is the decline of Helicobacter pylori, a bacterium living in the human stomach since time immemorial, good or bad for public health?

 

The Artistry of Microorganisms

Colonies of bacteria or amoebas form complex patterns that blur the boundary between life and nonlife.

 

Preparing for a Pandemic

One day a highly contagious and lethal strain of influenza will sweep across all humanity, claiming millions of lives.  It may arrive in months or not for years–but the pandemic is inevitable.  Are we ready?

 

The Science of Bad Breath

The age-old condition of bad breath is coming under new scientific scrutiny, leading to insights into diagnostic approaches and possible solutions.

 

Intrigue at the Immune Synapse

Images of interacting immune cells reveal structured connections similar to the ones neurons use to communicate.  Studying these synapses is providing new insights into how the cells form an information-sharing network to fight disease.

 

Talking Bacteria

Microbes seem to talk, listen and collaborate with one another–fodder for the truly paranoid.  Bonnie L. Bassler has been eavesdropping and translating.

 

Wading in Waste

Thanks to unchecked development along America’s coasts, disease-causing microbes are increasingly fouling beaches and shellfish beds.
