In this interview with Patrick Harris, from the University of Queensland, we discuss his role in setting up and co-ordinating the MERINO trial, and his research on the use of genomics in clinical microbiology.
Researchers have developed a potential new treatment strategy for gonorrhoea that targets the enzyme needed for the bacterium to respire anaerobically in its oxygen-poor biofilm environment.
Researchers have discovered that cell division sites in mycobacteria are correlated with inherited wave-like morphological landmarks on the cell surface.
A new study has investigated the effects of commonly used topical antimicrobials on the skin microbiome, discovering that antibiotics have a major and long-lasting effect.
A team from Tel Aviv University have developed hybrid bacteriophage particles that may allow DNA transduction to new bacteria, expanding the range of currently used phages.
Researchers have identified a subpopulation of T cells as key cytokine producers in addition to proposing a novel mechanism of immunosuppression following superantigen exposure.
A novel platform has demonstrated an ability to simultaneously detect multiple pathogens in human blood samples, potentially leading to the development of multiple-assay devices for clinical use.
