  • 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

  • Many more bacteria have electrically conducting filaments

    Microbiologists led by Derek Lovley at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, who is internationally known for having discovered electrically conducting microfilaments or "nanowires" in the bacterium Geobacter, announce in a new paper this month that they have discovered the unexpected structures more

  • New diagnostic tool aids quality control in xenotransplantations

    Sugars are highly important molecules for all life. They convey vital signals, and thus participate in manifold biological processes (e.g. determination of blood-types and the formation of bacterial biofilms). Sugars are often recognized by specialized proteins called lectins. Researchers at the Hel 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
