I am a medical student and I really like the subject. I had no idea about antibodies antigens all had to do with cell biology. I had no idea gene sequencing and therapy and monoclonal antibodies(MAb) can be used to treat cancer. I had no idea about PCR elisa western blot are are all crucial not only in dna analysis but to find about diseases and pathogens. The stuff about monoclonal antibodies is very fascinating. Learnt an animal is better for experiments because it's closer to the human genome and can mimic certain behavioural attitudes and likely to develop human pathologies. As a God will ..read more

Need help identifying two unknown bacteria

Hello! Currently taking microbio lab and I have some conflicting results as to what my two bacteria may be. Wanted to get some other opinions! The possible suspects are: bacillus subtillus, escherichia coli, staphylococcus aureus, psedomonas aeruginosa, acaligenes faecalis, and micrococcus luteus. Plate 1 had a negative gram stain, rods, slight turbidity with sediment in luria broth, and no growth on PEA plate. Plate 2 had a mixed negative and positive gram stain, rods, slight turbidity with thick pellicle in luria broth, and confluent lawn on PEA plate. My best guess is plate 1 may be E. Col ..read more

H19 influenza A virus exhibits species-specific MHC class II receptor usage. • Influenza A virus #H19 subtype does not bind the canonical receptor sialic acid. • H19 utilizes MHC class II proteins from distinct species for host cell entry.

Hi, I’m going to university in the fall of next year. I have always been sure about biology, but I find more and more interesting courses. I am considering forensic biology, biomedicine, microbiology, bioengineering and normal biology. I got an acceptance for biomedicine, but normal uni in my country is like free and it cost 5 grand a semester. I’m most interested in human biology, genetics and illnesses, but what should I choose? submitted by /u/Maleficent-Tour-9538 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

Gram positive, non lactose fermenting, alpha hemolytic bacteria in urine culture. What could it potentially/likely be?

This is not a course work related question (it IS a plate from class but I don’t need to know what it is) or medical related question. I narrowed it down to either Staphylococcus saprophyticus, or Enterococcus faecalis. Your urine is supposed to be relatively free of bacteria. Not sure why my plate grew. Any ideas?

Literature about microorganisms

What literature/books about microorganisms would you recommend? Not for studying but for fun - I'm interested in all microorganisms because I haven't gotten in touch with all of them in college and mostly won't since my degree isn't strict microbiology but has something to do with it. It can be a list and description of all bacteria, viruses, how microorganisms work, how we depend on them, anything really! Descriptions, purpose, interesting facts, something useful to know. Might be better if it's more clinically oriented, with diseases explained in depth etc.. I'm all ears ?? submitted by /u ..read more

Any sources for how phage K attacks S.aureus?

Which receptors does it bind to and which phage part helps with the binding? What reaction on the bacteria surface happens after the binding? Does it poke the inner membrane? It's so hard to find this information or maybe I'm bad at searching! submitted by /u/appleshateme [visit reddit] [comments ..read more
