Termite gut microbes could aid biofuel production

Microbes can help break down lignin

22-Feb-2021

Wheat straw, the dried stalks left over from grain production, is a potential source of biofuels and commodity chemicals. But before straw can be converted to useful products by biorefineries, the polymers that make it up must be broken down into their building blocks. Now, researchers reporting ...

New software allows fast and straightforward analysis of environmental microbes

A user-friendly method to reconstruct and analyze SSU rRNA from raw metagenome data

10-Nov-2020

First the background: Microbiologists traditionally determine which organisms they are dealing with using the small subunit ribosomal RNA or in short SSU rRNA gene. This marker gene allows to identify almost any living creature, be it a bacterium or an animal, and thus assign it to its place in ...

Lighting the path to recycling carbon dioxide

Combining solar-harvesting materials with carbon-dioxide–consuming microbes could be an efficient way to generate clean fuels

07-Oct-2020

Semiconductive photocatalysts that efficiently absorb solar energy could help reduce the energy required to drive a bioelectrochemical process that converts CO2 emissions into valuable chemicals, KAUST researchers have shown. Recycling CO2 could simultaneously reduce carbon emissions into the ...

Did nerve cells develop to talk to microbes?

CAU research team discovers that an ancient nervous system and symbiotic microorganisms communicate with each other

14-Jul-2020

Various diseases of the digestive tract, for example serious intestinal inflammation in humans, are closely linked to disturbances in the natural mobility of the intestine. The role of the microbiome - i.e. the natural microbial colonisation of the digestive tract - in these rhythmic contractions ...

Performance-enhancing bacteria discovered in the microbiome of elite athletes

26-Jun-2019

The human microbiome, the vast collection of microbes that colonize the surfaces lining many of our organs and our skin - is a critical pillar sustaining our general health. At any one time, 500 to 1,000 different species of bacteria inhabit us, which together contain far more genes than our ...

A dust-up: Microbes interact with harmful chemicals in dust

Microbes in household dust can break down harmful chemicals

15-Apr-2019

The dust that settles throughout our homes and offices almost always contains bits of chemicals that can cause problems for the human endocrine system, scientists say. But a new study indicates that the microbes we track into buildings--the microscopic bacteria and other microorganisms that ...
