Two PhD positions available at Station Biologique de Roscoff

Two PhD positions are starting next September and aim at exploring the symbiotic/mixotrophic structure of protistan diversity across Life’s kingdoms and global oceans biogeography and hydrography, as well as understanding the acclimation and adaptation patterns of the key protist players in these ecosystems which cover 71% of our planet and generate half its oxygen. Both students will apply innovative protocols combining eco-bioinformatics, single-cell -omics, and advanced imaging on Tara Oceans datasets and samples. They will integrate the Tara Oceans/Oceanomics international consortium (http://oceans.taraexpeditions.org/en/ http://www.oceanomics.eu/), and benefit from the great and long-standing pluridisciplinary expertise developed over the last 7 years in the collaborative network. 
The two projects are: “SYMBIOME: an eco-systemic approach to eukaryotic symbioses in global photic plankton” and “Exploring the Ocean’s biological dark matter using single eukaryotic cell”.

Potential weapons for the battle against antibiotic resistance discovered

The bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa can produce specific molecular factors that dramatically increase or decrease an antibiotic's ability to kill Staphylococcus aureus, another bacterium that often co-infects with P. aeruginosa. The findings point to the possibility of new antibiotics employing these factors to enhance antibiotic susceptibility.

Moćni mikrobi – prikaz knjige Mighty Microbes – The Amazing World of Microorganisms

Skupina znanstvenika i popularizatora znanosti iz Nizozemske se s ovom idejom pozabavila kroz fundaciju Microcanoni, nizozemsku inačicu projekta naziva „Što doista trebate znati o mikrobiologiji“ još 2011. Ta verzija prezentirana je i u amsterdamskom muzeju Artis Micropia, a djelo na engleskome čiji vam prikaz donosim je korak dalje koji je ova skupina ljudi poduzela u ulozi urednika knjige s naslovom Mighty Microbes i podnsalovom The Amazing World of Microorganisms. Osmislili su građu podijeljenu u devet tematskih cjelina, a unutar svake je pet do deset poglavlja (tema) za koje su kao autore ili suautore odabrali znanstvenike koji su sudjelovali u ključnim otkrićima ili su istaknuti stručnjaci u tom području.

Priručnik za vježbe iz opće mikrobiologije

Ovaj sveučilišni priručnik napisalo je petnaestak autora iz desetak visokoškolskih ustanova iz Zagreba i Rijeke, a sadržaj je podijeljen u petnaest, slikama bogato ilustriranih poglavlja u kojima su opisane i obrađene različite bakteriološke, virološke, mikološke, imunološke i molekularno-biološke metode koje se upotrebljavaju u općoj mikrobiologiji koja se studira na nizu različitih fakulteta i visokih škola.
