  • How antibiotic resistance persists thanks to selfish genetic elements

    Parts of the genetic information of many microorganisms are located on so-called plasmids. These are genetic elements which consist of a single DNA ring, and can reproduce independently of their host. Most bacteria carry plasmids as they enable them to acquire new genetic information by a process th more

  • How different antibiotics work together

    In modern medicine, antibiotics are as important as they are problematic. On the one hand, they are still the only effective treatment option for many diseases; on the other hand, the number of resistant pathogens is on the rise, a situation about which the WHO already raised a serious warning a few more

  • Detecting bacteria in space

    Scientists at Université de Montréal and McGill University have pioneered and tested a new genomic methodology which reveals a complex bacterial ecosystem at work on the International Space Station. Their study is published today in Environmental Microbiology. Until now, relatively little was known more
