  • A greener and cheaper technique for biofuel production

    A team of engineers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) recently discovered that a naturally occurring bacterium, Thermoanaerobacterium thermosaccharolyticum TG57, isolated from waste generated after harvesting mushrooms, is capable of directly converting cellulose, a plant-based materia more

  • Combating sulphuric acid corrosion at wastewater plants

    Wastewater systems are integral to infrastructure in every community. In an ideal world, they operate smoothly and are long-lasting. But biogenic transformation processes in sewage and water treatment systems are a “natural enemy” of conventional plants, frequently causing damage to concrete and met more

  • Unexpected environmental source of methane discovered

    Nitrogen-fixing bacteria are the chief means by which nitrogen gas in the air is changed into a form that plants and animals can use. Roughly 10 percent of these nitrogen-fixing microorganisms contain the genetic code for manufacturing a back-up enzyme, called iron iron-only nitrogenase, to do their more

Identify All Kinds of Microorganisms

The Biolog ID system gives you not only a name to your isolate, but also provides a profound analysis of the metabolic properties. Using 95 different substrates and growth conditions Biolog creates a phenotypic profile of the analyzed strain. This ensures an alignment with the Biolog database with m more

A Brief Summary of Disinfectants & Antiseptics

Ever wondered what compounds help kitchen cleaners keep your kitchen surfaces bacteria free? Or about the compounds that help antiseptic creams do their job? In this graphic, we take a look at some of the compounds used for antisepsis and disinfection, and where they’re commonly used. more

The Chemistry Behind the Smell of Wet Dogs

If you’re a dog owner, hot weather inevitably leads to wet dogs, particularly if you live near the sea, a river, or basically any other body of water that looks appealing to your canine companion. It’s probably not escaped your notice that dogs tend to smell pretty awful after getting wet. Why is th more

Biogenic Hydrocarbons and the Atmosphere

Biogenic hydrocarbon emissions from terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems are critical in ecology and plant physiology, from abiotic and biotic stress functions to integrated components of metabolism. Microorganisms also contribute by producing and taking up biogenic hydrocarbons in the environment. Ne

Carotenoids are isoprenoid pigments synthesized by plants and microorganisms, and are arguably the most ancient photoactive pigments on Earth. They have essential photoreception and photoprotection roles in photosynthesis and their cleavage products (apocarotenoids and retinoids) include signaling m
