MWV #81 - Sheldon Campbell - The Singing Microbiologist

submitted by: MicrobeWorld
Sheldon Campbell sings about microbiology. Dr. Campbell teaches microbiology at Yale School of Medicine and he uses music to enhance his lectures. He has one song for every block of lectures he gives on a major topic. Songs he's written include a song about fungi, tick borne disease, tuberculosis and one that reviews all of microbiology in eight minutes. Dr. Campbell hasn't done any testing to see his songs are more effective at getting his message across but he does get the occasional...

biosights: August 6, 2012 - Redistribution aids the pore

submitted by: JCB
In animal cells, the nuclear lamina keeps nuclear pore complexes evenly distributed throughout the nuclear envelope. Steinberg et al. reveal that fungi, which lack nuclear laminae, prevent their nuclear pores from clustering by moving them around on cytoskeletal tracks, a process that also helps to organize fungal chromosomes and optimize nucleocytoplasmic transport. This biosights episode presents the paper by Steinberg et al. from the August 6, 2012, issue of The Journal of Cell Biology...

MWV Episode 54 - TWiM at ICAAC Live

submitted by: MicrobeWorld

Episode 54 of MicrobeWorld Video, filmed at the 51st Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy on September 17, 2011, features a live recorded video episode of This Week in Microbiology (TWiM), a podcast about life on Earth.

Host Vincent and co-host Michael, along with guests Arturo, Stuart, and David converse about antimicrobial resistance and why most fungi do not cause disease.
