Survey of Clostridium difficile and Methicillinresistant Staphylococcus aureus in Swimming Pools
Limited research in the U.S. exists exploring Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Clostridium difficile in pool water. Previous studies in Europe and Africa detected MRSA and C. difficile in 7.5% and 50% ...
Coexisting Sedges in Northern Wisconsin Forests are Functionally Similar and May be Distantly Related in Evolutionary History
Organisms coexist either by having similar functional traits that match habitat requirements or by having non-similar traits to reduce competition. A classic study showed that coexisting oak trees in Florida tend to be ...
Investigating Gp93 Biology Via Cloning Drosophila Toll and Integrin Genes
In Drosophila melanogaster (fruit flies), the protein glycoprotein 93 (gp93) appears to be homologous to the mammalian protein glycoprotein 96 (gp96). As a chaperone, gp96 is required for Toll-like receptor (TLR) and ...
