High potential polymer carriers to enhance antibiotic efficiency in bacterial biofilms

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a frequent genetic disease resulting in chronic and difficult-to-treat pulmonary infections and inflammation that needs a lifelong treatment with aggressive antibiotic therapy by oral, intravenous or inhaled routes. The most abundant bacterial species

Sequence of the plant beneficial biocontrol agent Pseudomonas fluorescens DSM 8569

Pseudomonas represents an abundant bacterial group that can live in the soil. In this habitat many organisms like fungi, bacteria, plants or insects live together, often intensively interacting in close communities. The composition of these communities is

Genome sequence of the natural antagonist Pseudomonas fluorescens 2-79 against fungal plant diseases

In agriculture we have to deal with a huge variety of diseases caused by phytopathogenic bacteria, fungi or insects for instance. Many of these plant pathogens live in the soil and attack the respective cultivar at the

In vivo imaging of the lung inflammatory response to Pseudomonas aeruginosa

Chronic inflammation of the airways is a central component in lung diseases and is frequently associated with bacterial infections. Monitoring the pro-inflammatory capability of bacterial virulence factors in vivo is challenging and usually requires invasive methods. The

Bacterial cross-talk with small molecules

Bacteria, the unicellular prokaryotic microorganisms are the first form of life to appear on earth that may be traced way back about 4 billion years ago. Bacteria exist in typically two life forms i.e planktonic or free-swimming
