An Overview of Optimization, Characterization, Recovery and Application of Polyhydroxyalkanoates Synthesized by Microorganisms

If we work for a more sustainable future, the most significant roadblock is the quality and cost-effectiveness of plastics in most industries. As a result, bacterial polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) tend to be a promising candidate for replacing non-biodegradable plastics and combating the contamination caused by their accumulation over time. PHA are energy stores created by microbial […]

Material for the MCQ exam can be drawn from a number of sources, but will be based largely on lecture content in the course. In this book, the multiple choice questions have been prepared with […]

News Update on Antimicrobial Resistance Research: Jan – 2020

Mechanisms of Antimicrobial Resistance in Bacteria The treatment of bacterial infections is increasingly complicated by the power of bacteria to develop resistance to antimicrobial agents. Antimicrobial agents are often categorized consistent with their principal mechanism of action. Mechanisms include interference with cell membrane synthesis (e.g., β-lactams and glycopeptide agents), inhibition of protein synthesis (macrolides and […]

Latest News on Enterobacteriaceae Research: Jan – 2020

Identification of Enterobacteriaceae. Ewing has delivered to bear his wide experience within the field of the Enterobacteriaceae, particularly Jn their complex serological interrelationships, within the third edition of this work. The previous editions are essential handbooks altogether bacteriological laboratories where these organisms are studied in any detail, and lots of of the new and important […]

Latest News on Klebsiella Research: Jan – 2020

Multilocus Sequence Typing of Klebsiella pneumoniae Nosocomial Isolates A multilocus sequence typing (MLST) scheme was developed for Klebsiella pneumoniae. Sequences of seven housekeeping genes were obtained for 67 K. pneumoniae strains, including 19 ceftazidime- and ciprofloxacin-resistant isolates. Forty distinct allelic profiles were identified. MLST data were validated against ribotyping and showed high (96%) discriminatory power. […]

Latest Research on Mycobacterium Tuberculosis: Jan – 2020

Detection of rifampicin-resistance mutations in Mycobacterium tuberculosis Control of tuberculosis is threatened by widespread emergence of drug resistance in tubercle bacillus . Understanding the molecular basis of resistance might cause development of novel rapid methods for diagnosing drug resistance. We began to work out the molecular basis of resistance to rifampicin, a serious component of […]

Latest News on Newcastle Disease Virus Research: Jan – 2020

RNA editing in Newcastle disease virus The co-transcriptional editing of the Newcastle disease virus (NDV) P gene has been studied by sequence analysis of cloned viral genomic RNA and mRNA. Evidence has been obtained for the precise insertion of non-templated G nucleotides, the consequence of which is that the generation of three populations of P […]

Latest News on HCV Infection Research: Dec – 2019

Telaprevir for Retreatment of HCV Infection BACKGROUND: Up to 60% of patients with hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype 1 infection don’t have a sustained virologic response to therapy with peginterferon alfa plus ribavirin. METHODS: during this randomized, phase 3 trial, we evaluated the addition of telaprevir to peginterferon alfa-2a plus ribavirin in patients with HCV […]

News Update on Aspergillus Nidulans Research: Dec – 2019

Aspergillus nidulans Aspergillus nidulans may be a sexually reproducing member of the Aspergillaceae (Raper and Fennell, 1965). The history of genetic investigations of this mold dates from 1945, when Pontecorvo began to search for an organism suitable for a genetic approach to “certain problems of the spacial organisation of the cell” (Pontecorvo et al., 1953). […]
