bacteriophage

Bacteriophage - Bacteriophages are viruses that infect bacteria. Humans are not the only ones that can get infected. These viruses get into a bacteria, replicate themselves, and then cause the bacteria to burst!

golgi apparatus.

Golgi apparatus of eukaryotic cells functions in protein synthesis. I loved my molecular biology class and love this photo. Now, how to incorporate cell structure and cellular functions for my class?

Scientists at Harvard have developed a scanner which has built the first 3D map of the #brain. The team has logged more than 100 billon neurons and nerve cells, allowing us to see the complex inside workings of the brain for the first time.

"If you find yourself in Virginia's Dulles International Airport through November of this year, you might see the exhibition Life: Magnified on the walls. It features scientific images showing cells and other scenes of life magnified by as much as 50,000 times. The brilliantly-colored and beautifully-textured works depict parts of the human body such as the brain and blood cells, in addition to showing us what a fruit fly and lone star tick look like up close."

Electricity eating bacteria...All told, various researchers around the world have now discovered upwards of 10 different kinds of bacteria that feed on electricity — and, interestingly, they’re all pretty different (they’re not from the same family), and none of them are like Shewanella or Geobacter, two well-known bacteria that have interesting electrical properties.

Biologists discover electric bacteria that eat pure electrons rather than sugar, redefining the tenacity of life - ExtremeTech

Candida Yeast Overgrowth has been linked to thousands of health issues and it wreaking havoc on nearly every one. Keeping this regulated is critical.

SEM of Candida Albicans yeast cells. albicans is a single-celled fungus that is commonly found on the skin, mucous membranes of the mouth, digestive & respiratory tracts, and vagina, where it is usually harmless
