The summer is finishing (in Ireland somehow neither starts nor finishes), the children go back to school and stop messing around, the leaves fall, bla, bla, bla… and many good posts are around the bloggosphere:
Andreas Baumer posts about the experience he had when he realized of the ubiquitousness of our beloved bugs, particularly focusing on the omnipresence of biofilms in the surrounding world. By the way Andreas, did you trip with the black fungi on the wall? read the post and you’ll understand…
Tara posts about the emergence and outbreak of Antibiotic Resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains.
Mike talks about an outbreak of E. coli O157:H7, emphasizing that most of E. coli strains are harmless inhabitant of our gut.
In my post I give an example of how misleading can be the anthropocentric view of the world focusing on a “well-known pathogen”: Vibrio cholerae.
Hope you all had a nice summer cause I didn’t!
Salu y liberta and
Viva la Evolucion!
