Marine metagenomic large insert libraries as rich source for biofilm inhibiting molecules

Marine microbial consortia are highly diverse and have evolved during extended evolutionary processes of physiological adaptations affected by a variety of ecological conditions and selection pressures. They harbor an enormous diversity of metabolically complex microbes with still

In the pursuit of personalized medicine; New technologies to study the gut microbiome

Humans have a symbiotic relationship with microbes that reside in and on our bodies.  The human digestive tract contains as many as 1014 of bacterial cells, making it one of the densest and most diverse microbial communities

Identify the bacteria within and on your-self

The human intestine (gut) and other body sites harbor numerous microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, archaea, including fungi), collectively referred to as the microbiome or microbiota. The genome of these microbes encodes for metabolic functions and contribute significantly to the

What’s in your water? Using DNA to keep drinking waters clean

Turn on a tap, and many of us will be greeted with safe and clean drinking water. This is something that people living in developed nations often take for granted, as contaminated drinking water is a significant
