Free from the Science Reviews archives - Superconductivity

Posted on 9. March, 2015.

Superconductivity is one of the most explicit and dramatic forms of electronic order. We are baffled by its consequences, for example the complete breakdown of electrical resistance, the expulsion of small magnetic fields, the Josephson effect and magnetic levitation. But at a more conceptual level, the processes underlying these phenomena are equally captivating: why does a superconductor superconduct?

The transition from iron starvation to iron sufficiency as an important step in the progression of infection

Posted on 4. March, 2015.

Iron is an essential micronutrient for microbial life. At the start of an infection the host environment will normally restrict available iron, and innate immune responses will aim to further reduce iron, thus inhibiting growth of potential pathogens.

Endophytes – the chemical synthesizers inside plants - A Free Review

Posted on 24. February, 2015.

Endophytes are microbial entities that live within living tissues of plants.
In most cases their relationship with the host plant is symbiotic and probably mutualistic. Many are capable of synthesizing bio-active compounds that can be used by the plant for defense against pathogenic fungi and bacteria. Some of these compounds have proven useful for novel drug discovery.

Designer life using synthetic biology

Posted on 21. February, 2015.

Look anywhere on land or in the oceans and you will find a multitude of living creatures – plants and animals of all shapes and sizes – roughly 8.7 million eukaryotic species, give or take a million or so.

Then look closer, because most life is invisible to the human eye. A light microscope will reveal the bacteria; an electron microscope, the viruses. These organisms are everywhere.
