Interesting read out of re: surveillance. "Point-Counterpoint: Active surveillance for carriers of toxigenic Clostridium difficile should be performed to guide prevention efforts"

clear in vitro presentation that while WspR has 2 fold activity change every 10C (and drops rapidly afterwards), while TdcA has non-detectable activity at low temp, while 10 fold activity increase every 10C increase (even at high Temp)

difference between strains revealed by genome sequencing that revealed thermosensing diguanylate cyclase C-di-GMP reporter (with lux) - strong activation of c-di-GMP production at 37C

This, more than the O'Neill report apocalypse, is likely to be the true cost of antibiotic resistance: routine procedures will become life-threatening, changing the entire risk calculus of medicine.

What does PAMP Triggered Immunity look like to bacteria? Check out our new paper in MPMI (now in proof) where we use time-course RNAseq analysis of P. syringae during early infection or exposure to PTI to find out.

Surprised to see so few views of this resourceful movie by introducing how Hi-C genome scaffolding and metagenome deconvolution work. I will spread this in Japan cuz it gives a good introduction to a webinar I am giving next month.

A treat to have focus on the earliest stages of cell attachment. Under flow, only 10 seconds required to make holdfast!

Had a (pretty obvious in retrospect) realization today.... Much of Microbial genomics has completely shifted from asking what to sequence before story is done to asking how much to sequence before the story is done
