Puerto Rico can be considered an experiment made by nature. In this small island we have represented almost all the tropical ecosystems of the world as a result of a complex geology, topography coupled with spatial and temporal rainfall and temperature differences across the island. The island then can be considered a natural laboratory where scientific studies at different hierarchical scales can be carried out. Some of our ecosystems have been studied in great detail. Others, like forests on Karst geology have been studied at the ecosystem level. What is missing in most if not all our studies is the microbiological realm. Among the many questions that need to be answered are what is the microbial diversity in these ecosystems, how does temporal and spatial climate dynamics affect this biodiversity? How does microbial diversity and dynamics affect ecosystem function, especially plant/soil interactions and nutrient availability? A mechanistic view of microbial diversity and function will provide ...

Bacteria can coordinate and synchronize activities through a cell density-dependent regulatory mechanism called quorum sensing (QS). Bacteria can measure their population by the synthesis, secretion, and perception of QS signal molecules to regulate specific gene expression when the population reaches a critical threshold. QS participates in various microbial processes such as marine organism bioluminescence, bacterial biofilm formation, and virulence factor expression. The use of QS systems mediated by N-acyl-homoserine lactones and autoinducer-2 has been recently recognized as a promising regulatory approach in environmental science and technology that can intrinsically promote the profound comprehension of wastewater treatment from a microbiology perspective ...

Arrive with a DNA sample, leave with a genome Course Description This two-week course covers the process of sequencing, assembling and annotating a bacterial or archaeal genome from scratch. It then builds on these skills to train students in further analysis of microbial genomes, such as the prediction of metabolic pathways, comparative genomics, and phylogenomics. This course goes deeper than basic push-button genome assembly and annotation tools - students learn how relevant genomics software tools work and how to make intelligent, situation-dependent decisions when analysing microbial genomes. Students work on real data related to their own research by submitting DNA from an isolate of their choosing several weeks before the course begins. Illumina MiSeq sequencing is then carried out so that sequencing data is ready for students when they arrive. Is this the course for you? If you are a PhD student who would like to answer a research question using a microbial genome but dont know how ...

Commercial feed appears to be a source of Salmonella contamination in commercial swine production units, according to a paper in the November 2010 issue of the journal Applied and Environmental Microbiology. Moreover, nearly half of isolates found in pigs were multidrug resistant. The findings suggest that pork could be a source of human infection. They also strongly question the conventional wisdom that processed feed is not a source of contamination. Heat treatment during processing has been thought to kill any bacterial contaminants.
The method, described in the March 2006 issue of Applied Environmental Microbiology, has many applications -- from assessing the microbes present in environmental samples and identifying species useful for cleaning up contamination to identifying pathogens and distinguishing harmless bacteria from potential bioterror weapons. Microbial communities are enormously diverse and complex, with hundreds of species per milliliter of water or thousands per gram of soil, said Brookhaven biologist Daniel (Niels) van der Lelie, lead author of the study. Elucidating this complexity is essential if we want to fully understand the roles microbes play in global cycles, make use of their enormous metabolic capabilities, or easily identify potential threats to human health. Growing cultures of microbes to identify species is slow and error prone as the culture conditions often screen out important members of the community. Sequencing entire genomes, while highly specific and informative, would be too labor ...

Bacteria from fecal material-in particular, dog fecal material-may constitute the dominant source of airborne bacteria in Clevelands and Detroits wintertime air, says a new study led by researchers from the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES).. The study, which was published July 29 in Applied and Environmental Microbiology, showed that of the four Midwestern cities in the experiment, two cities had significant quantities of fecal bacteria in the atmosphere-with dog feces being the most likely source.. "We found unexpectedly high bacterial diversity in all of our samples, but to our surprise the airborne bacterial communities of Detroit and Cleveland most closely resembled those communities found in dog poop," said lead author Robert Bowers, a CIRES graduate student in CU Boulders Ecology and Evolutionary Biology department. "This suggests that dog poop may be a potential source of bacteria to the atmosphere at these locations.". Scientists already knew that ...

Research Summary. The main focus of the Polz lab is the exploration of structure-function relationships in microbial communities. Environmental microbiology is at an important cross roads. We have learnt during the last 20 years that microbes are the most ubiquitous organisms on Earth. Yet what governs the interactions and evolution of microorganisms within the complex communities present in the environment remains almost completely unknown. What environmental factors control the diversity and dynamics of microbial populations? What is the functional role and redundancy of individual populations within the community? What is the range of genome similarity that defines a functional unit? What mechanisms govern diversification of microbial populations in the environment? We seek to address these questions by a combination of in situ molecular approaches, environmental genomics, traditional physiological techniques and qualitative modeling using primarily the coastal Ocean as a model system. The ...

Research performed at the Division of Environmental Microbiology has over the last years resulted in the isolation of possible bacterial key-organisms with efficient nutrient removal properties (Comamonas denitrificans, Brachymonas denitrificans, Aeromonas hydrophila). Effective use of these organisms for enhanced nutrient removal in wastewater treatment applications requires the strains to be retained, to proliferate and to maintain biological activity within theprocess. This can be achieved by immobilization of the organisms using an appropriate system.Two putative immobilization systems, agar entrapment and biofilm formation, wereassessed. Surface attached biofilm growth provided better results with respect to cell retention,proliferation and microbial activity than immobilization in agar beads. Thus, biofilm physiology was further characterized using simplified systems of single, dual or multi strain bacterial consortia containing the key-organisms as well as other wastewater treatment ...
Bacterial Contamination Can Occur Instantaneously on the Floor Food dropped on the floor for less than five seconds is safe to eat, right? Wrong. Researchers from Rutgers University put the "Five Second Rule" to the test in a 2016 study published in Applied and Environmental Microbiology. Results are less than appetizing. Researchers dropped four different foods (watermelon, bread, buttered bread and gummy candies) on four different surfaces (stainless steel, tile, wood and carpet) for four different time periods (less than one second and five, 30 and 300 seconds). Surfaces were contaminated with E. aerogenes, a food-grade bacterium that acts similarly to Salmonella. Though longer contact times did result in more bacterial transfer, some bacteria hopped on to food in less than one second on the floor. Researchers also found bacterial cross-contamination depends on much more than time. Watermelon had the highest transfer rate regardless of time, likely because its moist and has a uniform surface ...

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online. New research from Mercyhurst University and the University at Buffalo recently suggested that current testing methods for E. coli in lakes and rivers are insufficient. According to the scientists report in the journal"¯Applied and Environmental Microbiology, E. coli that produce a particular toxin are able to fend off predators and survive longer in lake water than their more benign counterparts.. "The take-home lesson is that"¯E. coli that produce Shiga toxin persisted longer in recreational water than"¯E. coli that don´t produce this toxin," said study leader Gerald Koudelka, a biology professor at UB. "This is because the toxin appears to help"¯E. coli resist predation by bacterial grazers.". Previous studies have shown that overall"¯E. coli concentrations aren´t always linked to the levels of the more dangerous Shiga toxin-producing"¯E. coli present in lake or river water, Koudelka said. He added that the new study can help to ...

Blood in healthy organisms is seen as a ‘sterile’ environment: it lacks proliferating microbes. Dormant or not-immediately-culturable forms are not absent, however, as intracellular dormancy is well established. We highlight here that a great many pathogens can survive in blood and inside erythrocytes. ‘Non-culturability’, reflected by discrepancies between plate counts and total counts, is commonplace in environmental microbiology. It is overcome by improved culturing methods, and we asked how common this would be in blood. A number of recent, sequence-based and ultramicroscopic studies have uncovered an authentic blood microbiome in a number of non-communicable diseases. The chief origin of these microbes is the gut microbiome (especially when it shifts composition to a pathogenic state, known as ‘dysbiosis’). Another source is microbes translocated from the oral cavity. ‘Dysbiosis’ is also used to describe translocation of cells into blood ...
Certain Streptococci increase their production of toxic shock syndrome toxin 1, sometimes to potentially dangerous levels, when aerobic bacteria are present in the vagina. But scientists from the University of Western Ontario have discovered certain strains of lactobacillus bacteria are capable of dampening production of that toxin according to research published in the journal Applied and Environmental Microbiology. "The risk of potentially fatal toxic shock syndrome appears to be influenced by the types of bacteria present in the vagina," says principal investigator Gregor Reid ...

Scientists have isolated peptides (strings of amino acids) with antibiotic effects on bacteria that spoil food and cause food poisoning, after turning to the plant kingdom for help in boosting our arsenal in the ongoing war against antibiotic resistance.. The scientists found two small peptides from widely cultivated crop species (one from broad beans and one from cowpea) that were especially effective.. Further work then confirmed that when these peptides were used together, and with a human peptide that is also an antimicrobial, their protective effects were beefed-up in a one-two antimicrobial punch.. Associate Professor and Head of Microbiology at Trinity College Dublin, Ursula Bond, led the team that has just published its research in the journal Applied and Environmental Microbiology.. She said: "There are two major advantages to these small peptides in that no resistance mechanisms have emerged yet, and in that they can be inexpensively synthesised in the lab. Initially, our aim was to ...
Washington, DC - Dec. 16, 2016 - A team of researchers has developed a portable detection system that can rapidly identify some of the most virulent, often multi-drug resistant pathogens. This device was designed to be used in places where laboratory resources are lacking, such as isolated villages in developing countries. The research is published December 16th in Applied and Environmental Microbiology, a journal of the American Society for Microbiology. Microbial infections afflict approximately1.5 billion people annually, killing roughly 4.6 million, most of that toll in the developing world. The lack of diagnostic facilities in remote locations prevents timely identification of pathogens. That frequently forces caregivers to guess when diagnosing and treating microbial infections. Under these circumstances, treatment is less likely to be effective. For example, when an infections cause cant be identified with certainty, caregivers frequently use broad spectrum antibiotics to boost the ...

Rutgers researchers have disproven the widely accepted notion that its OK to scoop up food and eat it within a "safe" five-second window. Donald Schaffner, professor and extension specialist in food science, found that moisture, type of surface and contact time all contribute to cross-contamination. In some instances, the transfer begins in less than one second. Their findings appear online in the American Society for Microbiologys journal, Applied and Environmental Microbiology.. "The popular notion of the five-second rule is that food dropped on the floor, but picked up quickly, is safe to eat because bacteria need time to transfer," Schaffner said, adding that while the pop culture "rule" has been featured by at least two TV programs, research in peer-reviewed journals is limited.. "We decided to look into this because the practice is so widespread. The topic might appear light but we wanted our results backed by solid science," said Schaffner, who conducted research with Robyn Miranda, ...

It seems these would also be a great test system for more whole genome sequencing or at least more polymorphism comparisons to try and determine the proportion of the genome that comes from different parents and estimate timing and frequency of hybridization. It seems possible that the hybridizations are occurring multiple times in nature so are the same regions from each parental genome kept in the hybrid offspring that are selected for fitness under fermentation stress?.

It can be an especially important reactant in polluted water, such as the runoff from coal mines. When the ion Mn(II) is converted to higher oxidized states, it forms a reactive mineral that is extremely useful in getting other pollutants - such as arsenic, cadmium, and cobalt - under control and out of the water.. "If you can get manganese to oxidize, then it forms these really active minerals, manganese oxides, which are environmental sponges that will clean up the water," explains principal investigator Colleen Hansel, a faculty associate and former associate professor of environmental microbiology at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS). She is currently an associate scientist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. "A lot of coal mine drainage remediation relies on getting bacteria and fungi to oxidize manganese to make these minerals.". "One problem with in situ remediation is that if you dont know how and why processes are occurring, you cant stimulate the ...

Swabbing and rinsing are the two most common techniques used for sampling of such cleaned surfaces. Swabbing is a direct surface sampling method, while rinsing is an indirect method. In practice, physical access to surfaces and parts of equipment to be cleaned tends to drive the choice of sampling method. For example, swabbing would work particularly well in more restricted work areas such as isolators, hoods, and accessible corners of equipment, while rinsing would work best in pipes and longer tubes. In general, a combination of both is most desirable in order to accomplish the most comprehensive coverage of surfaces to be cleaned ...
