About half of atmospheric carbon dioxide is fixed by ocean's phytoplankton through a process called photosynthesis. A large portion of biologically fixed carbon is formed by picocyanobacteria at the sea surface and then transported to the deep ocean. But what remains a mystery is how colored dissolved organic matter which originates from plant detritus (either on land or at sea) makes it into the deep ocean. A team of scientists has potentially found a viable marine source of this colored material.

When people develop a respiratory infection, recovery from their illness leaves behind an immunological memory that influences how they will respond to later infections. In a new study, researchers demonstrate for the first time that recovery from bacterial pneumonia changes the tissue that was infected, seeding the lungs with immune cells called resident memory T (TRM) cells.

So what about novel treatments? The encouraging thing is that we did come across a number of different approaches to fighting the threat of antibiotic resistance that were promising. One of the oldest approaches, which in the West is only now coming back into fashion, is the use of viruses to attack bacteria. Just as we are prone to viral infections, such as the common cold, so are bacteria. The viruses that infect and kill bacteria are known as bacteriophages or phages. It's been estimated there are more than 10 million trillion trillion phages around, which is more than...
|Microbial fuel cell converts methane to electricity|

Transporting methane from gas wellheads to market provides multiple opportunities for this greenhouse gas to leak into the atmosphere. Now, an international team of researchers has taken the first step in converting methane directly to electricity using bacteria, in a way that could be done near the drilling sites.
