researchers genetically modified millions of bacteria to smoothly swim with a light controllable speed, and then arranged them into complex and reconfigurable density patterns. The post italian scientists use bacteria to ‘paint’ the mona lisa appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
A new study from researchers at the Mayo Clinic may shed some light on why certain people can lose more weight than others despite adhering to the same regime of exercise and caloric restriction. Alongside a myriad of other recent medical discoveries, the secret may lie in the unique make-up of our gut bacteria... Continue Reading Struggle to lose weight? Your gut bacteria may be to blame
Impressive new research from a team at Stanford University has revealed that a molecule produced by a certain type of gut bacteria can offer natural protection from Salmonella infections. As well as pointing toward potential new treatment strategies, the discovery could explain why some people get sicker from the pathogen than others...

The bacteria that call your gut home can have a tremendous impact on your overall health, but exactly how the bugs do so is a web that's still being untangled. To investigate, researchers at Harvard Medical School have deleted a single gene from one gut bacteria species and found that it alters the metabolism of the host, reducing their weight gain...

Nitrogen is a vital nutrient for plants, and although there's plenty of it drifting around in the air, they can only pull it out of the ground – hence the need for artificial fertilizer. But now, researchers at Washington University in St Louis have engineered bacteria that can efficiently suck nitrogen out of the air, and the long-term goal is to develop crops that can do the same...

A compelling new study from researchers at Joslin Diabetes Center has shed more light on the mysterious connection between our diet, gut bacteria and mood. The study found that mice given a high-fat diet displayed greater depressive behaviors until microbiome-altering antibiotics returned their behavior back to normal...

When it comes to treatments for constipation, the options aren't plentiful, nor are they always particularly effective. Help may be on the way, however, in the form of genetically-engineered bacteria...

Antibiotics are effective at killing bacteria (for now, at least), but they aren't very picky, indiscriminately wiping out both good and bad bacteria. This can upset the fragile balance of your microbiome, which is increasingly being linked to general health and wellbeing. Now, researchers at Penn State have developed a new approach to make a drug that can single out a specific, opportunis
Intriguing new research from the University of Colorado Boulder is suggesting that one particular bacteria could have beneficial anti-inflammatory effects on the brain. Early studies in rodent models have found that through injections of the bacteria the animals can be essentially 'immunized' against displaying anxious responses to stressful situations...

Healthcare-associated infections are definitely no good, but neither is the overuse of antibiotics, as it creates resistant strains of bacteria. With that in mind, a new type of medical gloves has been developed, that kills microbes without the use of added chemicals...
