NAU team awarded prestigious Chan Zuckerberg grant to build global community around bioinformatics software

Northern Arizona University

Greg Caporaso is leading the effort, which is aimed at building a more diverse community of users and developers of QIIME 2, an open source and free bioinformatics software, by making it easier for microbiome scientists and software developers around the world to learn and contribute to the program.

The gut may be the ticket to reducing chemo’s side effects

Ohio State University

In a new study, scientists observed several simultaneous reactions in mice given a common chemotherapy drug: Their gut bacteria and tissue changed, their blood and brains showed signs of inflammation, and their behaviors suggested they were fatigued and cognitively impaired.

Exercise, Weight Loss May Induce Metabolism-related Changes to Molecules in Gut

American Physiological Society (APS)

New research finds that exercise causes changes to some of the body’s metabolites—small molecules the body produces during metabolism—and also triggers change in blood levels of unique “foreign” molecules not thought to stem from our own metabolism. These changes to the global metabolome—the entire group of metabolites found throughout the body in the blood, tissues or urine—may help scientists better understand the body’s response to exercise.

Newswise: Rogers examines the effects of ancient microbes in new book

Rogers examines the effects of ancient microbes in new book

Bowling Green State University

The idea of freezing a life in ice and thawing it out years, even centuries, later has been used extensively in novels, movies and comics. According to BGSU biology professor Scott Rogers in his new book this concept may be more fact than fiction, and the outcomes of this are just as worrying as they are exciting.

Quantitative Biology Opens Trail to Ecological Exploration, Evolutionary Prediction

University of California San Diego

New papers published in Nature uncover surprising new findings on bacterial chemotaxis—the movement of bacterial cells in response to chemical stimuli. The results open the door to a more comprehensive understanding of fundamental questions of ecological exploration and evolutionary prediction.

Straight from the source

Washington University in St. Louis

Ever since scientists discovered that certain microbes can get their energy from electrical charges, researchers have wondered how they do it. Bacteria don’t have mouths, so they need another way to bring their fuel into their bodies. New research from Washington University in St. Louis reveals how one such bacteria pulls in electrons straight from an electrode source.

City Apartments or Jungle Huts: What Chemicals and Microbes Lurk Inside?

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

Researchers at Rutgers and other universities found city homes to be rife with industrial chemicals, cleaning agents and fungi that love warm, dark surfaces, while jungle huts had fresher air, more sunlight and natural materials with which humans evolved.
