Man dies from new #coronavirus in UK http://goo.gl/kV9CJ

A man infected with the novel Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-nCV) has died in a UK hospital. The patient, who was 49, was being treated for kidney failure and acute respiratory syndrome. There have now been 41 deaths from the virus, which emerged last year and is similar to those that cause Sars and the common cold.

Google celebrates birth of inventor of the petri dish http://goo.gl/eSGwa (Share to celebrate) #lovemicrobiology

German bacteriologist's invention allowed for the better identification of #bacteria and the diseases they caused.

Google has celebrated the birth of the inventor of the petri dish, Julius Richard Petri, who was born on May 31, 1852 with a doodle on its home page.

He studied medicine at the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Academy for Military Physicians in Berlin and later worked at the Imperial Health Office with Robert Koch who is considered the father of modern bacteriology.

The #doodle features six petri dishes which are swabbed by a hand. Images of bacteria grow and spread in the dishes.

Petri was not the first to use agar, a substance made from algae, to culture bacteria but he invented the standard dish in which it was done. The petri dish allowed for the better identification of bacteria and the diseases they caused. Petri dishes later moved from the laboratory to the class room where they are used by every pupil of biology.

#Petri died on December 20, 1921.

Campylobacter jejuni and the optimized Campylobacter IMS technique http://goo.gl/ykjGK

Campylobacter jejuni is an important human food-born intestinal pathogen. The optimized #Campylobacter IMS technique described in this study allowed isolation directly from an animal host. Changes in gene expression and glycan binding at an in vivo level can also be identified by using this method.

Join the debate: Are viruses alive?

When researchers first discovered agents that behaved like bacteria but were much smaller and caused diseases such as rabies and foot-and-mouth disease, it became the general view that viruses were biologically "alive."

However this perception changed in 1935 when the tobacco mosaic virus was crystallized and it was shown that the particles lacked the mechanisms necessary for metabolic function. Once it was established that viruses consist merely of DNA or RNA surrounded by a protein shell, it became the scientific view that they are more complex biochemical mechanisms than living organisms.

Are viruses alive? What do you think?

Vaccination against malaria http://goo.gl/lEICU (PDF 131kb)

The immune response to malaria #parasites is extremely complex, and nonimmune individuals are highly susceptible to infection and have a high risk of developing severe #malaria. The susceptibility to such clinical complications decreases after a person experiences several #infections, but infected patients still display classical malaria symptoms that include fevers, chills and rigors, even with lower parasite burdens.

Read the exclusive chapter on malaria from the parasitology book everyone is talking about 'Immunity to Parasitic Infection'. Read more about the book online: http://goo.gl/BGIHq

Parasite metabolism can foretell disease ranges under climate change http://goo.gl/yBBKV

Knowing the temperatures that viruses, bacteria, worms and all other parasites need to grow and survive could help determine the future range of infectious diseases under climate change, according to new research.

Death on a nanometer scale: Study measures holes antibacterials create in cell walls http://goo.gl/4r2gd [article] #microbiology

The rise of antibiotic-resistant bacteria has initiated a quest for alternatives to conventional antibiotics. One potential alternative is PlyC, a potent enzyme that kills the bacteria that causes strep throat and streptococcal toxic shock syndrome.

PlyC operates by locking onto the surface of a bacteria cell and chewing a hole in the cell wall large enough for the bacteria's inner membrane to protrude from the cell, ultimately causing the cell to burst and die.
