Lab stock photo fails, part 2 – amazing skills

You give a bunch of nice looking gals and guys some white coats, gloves and safety goggles, and put them in a laboratory, and let them play with some pipettes, microscopes, petridishes and colored water. What could possibly go wrong? Well, turns out, a lot. Here is part 2 of some laboratory photo fails that I found on the Fotolia.com websites. “Pasteur turns around in his grave”, Fotolia.com.

This is clearly beneficial to the F-plasmid, since its genes get replicated, but why is it useful to the bacteria?

The F-plasmid often contains useful genes that deal with stressful situations that have recently arisen, for will spread this resistance to other bacteria. Explorer. What kind of results will I get?

Explorer

After your sample has been analyzed, you get to be an explorer and learn about the vast rainforest of bacteria in your body. Logging in to uBiome.com, you'll see detailed information on each of these bacteria - what their names are, how many of each kind there are, what their functions are in the body. You may find yourself curious to compare your results with the aggregate results of everyone who's done the test, and with specific groups of people.

The first thousand days – intestinal microbiology of early life: establishing a symbiosis - Wopereis - 2014 - Pediatric Allergy and Immunology

Pioneer bacteria colonizing the infant intestinal tract and the gradual diversification to a stable climax ecosystem plays a crucial role in establishing host–microbe interactions essential for optimal symbiosis.

On a pris en main le projecteur tactile Xperia Touch de Sony et c'est plutôt cool - Tech

Ce projecteur tactile est aujourd'hui vraiment abouti : nous avons pu l'essayer au MWC. Parfois, les concepts arrivent jusqu’à une commercialisation. Le Xperia Touch n’est pas, à proprement parler, une nouveauté. Nous vous en parlions déjà l’année dernière lors de notre visite du Mobile World Congress. Mais cette année, le projecteur tactile sous Android de Sony a fait plusieurs grands pas : non seulement il est utilisable dans sa version finale, mais en plus, il va être commercialisé.

Design médical: novembre 2013

J'ai une tablette sur laquelle j'ai regardé ce qu'il y avait sur le médical et j'y ai trouvé plusieurs applications sur le corps humain notamment. Mais soit trop compliquées, soit trop chère. J'ai arrêté de chercher et c'est par hasard que je suis tombé sur cette application : TINYBOP. C'est une très jolie application ludique qui, sans donner trop d'informations, permet aux enfants d'apprendre le fonctionnement du corps humain tout en s'amusant.

C'est un accompagnement que l'adulte peut utiliser aussi pour demander à son enfant ce qu'il ressent. Il y a une vision du corps dans sa globalité et des détails tels que les dents, l'estomac ou les articulations principales.C'est très important de pouvoir expliquer et comprendre le corps humain.

Introduction Communities, or species assemblages, are a fundamental unit of ecological organization, just as cell or tissue types are fundamental units of study for molecular biology and physiology. Originally developed for macroorganismal systems (Clements, 1916), many community ecology theories attempt to elucidate complex species interactions across space and time. Increasingly, these concepts are being applied to the study of some of our planet’s most complex and intimate communities—host-associated microbiomes. Both plants and animals are colonized by an astonishing number of symbiotic microbes (Raaijmakers et al., 2008; Zilber-Rosenberg and Rosenberg, 2008; Rodriguez et al., 2009; Lecuit and Eloit, 2013), and recent advances in sequencing technologies and data processing are finally affording researchers the opportunity to uncover the cryptic diversity and functions of these microbiomes (Zimmerman et al., 2014).

Illustration by Serge Bloch Nearly a year has passed since Rebecca Knickmeyer first met the participants in her latest study on brain development. Knickmeyer, a neuroscientist at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine in Chapel Hill, expects to see how 30 newborns have grown into crawling, inquisitive one-year-olds, using a battery of behavioural and temperament tests. In one test, a child's mother might disappear from the testing suite and then reappear with a stranger. Another ratchets up the weirdness with some Halloween masks. Your Changing Microbiome.

Malgré la cohabitation avec ces milliards de bactéries à l’âge adulte, le nouveau né est stérile à la naissance. Le premier contact avec des bactéries s’effectue lors de l’accouchement. La composition du microbiote varie fortement dans les premiers mois de la vie au gré du passage des bactéries dans notre tube digestif. La diversité des bactéries présentes dans notre tube digestif augmente progressivement et c’est vers l’âge de deux ans que le microbiote se stabilise pour être fonctionnellement proche de celui retrouvé à l’âge adulte. Cette stabilité est néanmoins fragile car le microbiote est soumis à de nombreux facteurs pouvant le modifier tels qu’un régime alimentaire trop gras ou une prise fréquente d’antibiotiques. La répartition des bactéries le long du tube digestif n’est pas homogène.

En pratique, il est difficilement envisageable de récupérer les bactéries intestinales directement dans le côlon car cette procédure est invasive pour le patient et nécessite une anesthésie. 1. Microbiota – the forgotten organ. Back to overview. The gut flora as a forgotten organ. Gout diet: Fruit and vegetables could cure painful form of arthritis.

Eating plenty of fruit and vegetables can reduce the risk of agonising gout attacks, as it can affect gut bacteria, experts have said. They said following a high fibre diet combats the razor sharp crystals that form in and around the joints and under the skin. Gout is caused by too much uric acid in the bloodstream, which causes urate crystals to start to form in and around the joints and under the skin. Coming of age: ten years of next-generation sequencing technologies : Nature Reviews Genetics. Since the completion of the human genome project in 2003, extraordinary progress has been made in genome sequencing technologies, which has led to a decreased cost per megabase and an increase in the number and diversity of sequenced genomes. An astonishing complexity of genome architecture has been revealed, bringing these sequencing technologies to even greater advancements.

Some approaches maximize the number of bases sequenced in the least amount of time, generating a wealth of data that can be used to understand increasingly complex phenotypes. Alternatively, other approaches now aim to sequence longer contiguous pieces of DNA, which are essential for resolving structurally complex regions. These and other strategies are providing researchers and clinicians a variety of tools to probe genomes in greater depth, leading to an enhanced understanding of how genome sequence variants underlie phenotype and disease. ⭐Le microbiote intestinal humain.

Microbiome may be next big frontier in medicine. The GLP aggregated and excerpted this blog/article to reflect the diversity of news, opinion and analysis. The human gut microbiome — which includes the community of trillions of bacteria living within our intestines — has been called one of the next big frontiers in medicine. In recent years, a growing body of research has shown that the bacteria in our gut exert a powerful influence on our immune and endocrine systems, brain health, mood and cognitive function, and other key biological processes. We know that the balance of good and bad bacteria in the gut can keep us healthy — or can contribute to disease. Now, the next step for this exciting medical frontier is learning how to leverage the power of the microbiome to treat disease.

In new research, biologists and medical engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are doing just that by reprogramming gut bacteria to act as “living therapeutics” that can correct the metabolic dysfunctions underlying certain ailments.
