Carrying a science experiment designed by six Ocean City High School students, Mission 6 is scheduled to blast off to the International Space Station this October. The Ocean City School District is one of 20 districts from across the nation selected to participate in the National Center for Earth and Space Science Education's Student Spaceflight Experiment Program .

Ribosomal protein S1, consisting of six contiguous OB-folds, is the largest ribosomal protein and is essential for translation initiation in Escherichia coli . S1 is also one of the three essential host-derived subunits of QI2 replicase, together with EF-Tu and EF-Ts, for QI2 RNA replication in E. coli .
Next time you go to the beach, bacteria is a danger that could make you sick. San Francisco officials have released an app promising an early warning.
An E. coli outbreak has prompted health officials to launch an investigation. There are five confirmed cases among children in Kentucky and a sixth case believed to be related is under investigation.
Chromosomal DNA from several Escherichia coli reference strains was transduced by bacteriophage P1 into E. coli strain K12 W3110 trpA33. Recombination patterns of the transductants were determined by restriction fragment length polymorphism over a 40-kb region centering on a single marker in the tryptophan operon.
Digestive diseases caused by flagellated bacteria are a huge public health problem worldwide and rapid detection methods are needed for contaminated environments. In this study, we propose a method to detect patterns associated with pathogens based on the properties of the innate immune system.
Massey University Professor of Food Safety and Veterinary Public Health, Nigel French, is bringing evidence-based science to the table and he wants to stop people getting sick unnecessarily. There is an increase in people producing and selling raw milk, by vending machine, and selling it at the farm.
He's not a dentist, but Christopher Miller is focused on fluoride. Two studies from his Brandeis University lab provide new insights into the mechanisms that allow bacteria to resist fluoride toxicity, information that could eventually help inform new strategies for treating harmful bacterial diseases.
Summary Researchers have developed an artificial 'biospleen' that may be able to quickly clean blood of everything from E coli to Ebola. Researchers have developed an artificial 'biospleen' that may be able to quickly clean blood of everything from E coli to Ebola.
BACKGROUND:Although genes on the chromosome are organized in a fixed order, the spatial correlations in transcription have not been systematically evaluated. We used a combination of genomic and signal processing techniques to investigate the properties of transcription in the genome of Escherichia coli K12 as a function of the position of genes on the chromosome.RESULTS:Spectral analysis of transcriptional series revealed the existence of statistically significant patterns in the spatial series of transcriptional activity.

In a 2011 germ study conducted by the National Sanitation Foundation International, 22 families swabbed 30 everyday household items ranging from kitchen surfaces to cell phones to pet items to measure contamination levels of yeast, mold and coliform bacteria . The item most frequently used to clean dishes and countertops was actually the germiest place found in most homes.

Mutants of Escherichia coli resistant to the antibiotic clorobiocin are also coumermycin resistant, and the mutation to resistance in at least one mutant was mapped near gyrB. We conclude, therefore, that clorobiocin inhibits deoxyribonucleic acid gyrase, and the drug was used to probe the role of this enzyme in vivo.
