Metabolic rewiring of the probiotic bacterium Lacticaseibacillus rhamnosus GG contributes to cell-wall remodeling and antimicrobial production
Culturomics-based metagenomics (CBM) - a powerful approach for mining microbial dark matter resources hidden in unexplored habitats

Mass die-offs of marine birds and mammals in Peru sound the alarm on the spread of highly pathogenic avian influenza (H5N1) viruses throughout South America
The enormous hydrodynamic forces at the microscale - a key process regulating microbial community structure and ecological characteristics
MAP2B is a metagenomic profiler that works differently from universal marker or whole genome-based methods for deciphering whole metagenome sequencing, which can significantly remove false identifications and generate highly accurate taxonomic profiling results.
Revolutionizing Stress Monitoring: Multimodal Responses and Segmented Populations in Biofilms Unveiled by a Three-Colour Stress Biosensor
Trehalose polyphleates- very large, surface-exposed molecules- are required for infection of several phages used as therapy against opportunistic pathogen Mycobacterium abscessus.
Discovery of a natural IgA human monoclonal antibody against Mtb protein LpqH and its significance in TB prophylaxis
The discovery of a protective natural IgA human monoclonal antibody against LpqH, a major virulence factor in Mtb pathogenesis, from a naturally exposed asymptomatic donor, opens new avenues in TB vaccine development and prophylaxis.
Stranded cetaceans provide a unique opportunity for gaining insight into their increasingly threatened health and conservation. Within this framework, cetaceans could also serve as potentially useful animal models for human central nervous system (CNS) diseases (Di Guardo, 2023).
Successful immunisation studies in monkeys based on MSP1 involved the use of the full-length protein as a malaria vaccine. However, unsuccessful human trials only tested MSP1 subunits. We explore the potential of SumayaVac-1 to broadly stimulate immune mechanisms associated with protection.
Correlations hint at connections between host traits and groups of bacteria from the gut microbiota, but the underlying mechanisms are often hard to figure out. We explored the biology of understudied gut bacteria from the genus Turicibacter and identified one way they are linked to host lipids.
The story behind our mathematical modeling study which took a deep dive into different assays for measuring the latent HIV reservoir, the barrier to cure.
