New sugar-coated nanosheets to selectively target pathogens

A team led by scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have developed a process for creating ultrathin,...
Bacterial competition at the microscale: The T6SS (green, magenta) mediated killing and lysis of competing bacteria can lead to DNA release (cyan) and subsequent gene transfer.

Scientists discovered that bacteria acquire resistance from competitors

Bacteria not just create protection from anti-toxins, they additionally can lift it up from their opponents. A new research by the University of Basel...
