Welcome to the microbiome : getting to know the trillions of bacteria and other microbes in, on, and around you by Rob DeSalle( Book )

12 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 1,828 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This intriguing up-to-the-minute book for scientists and non-scientists alike explains what researchers are discovering about the microbe world and what the implications are for modern science and medicine. DeSalle and Perkins illuminate the long, intertwined evolution of humans and microbes. They discuss how novel DNA sequencing has shed entirely new light on the complexity of microbe-human interactions, and they examine the potential benefits to human health: amazing possibilities for pinpoint treatment of infections and other illnesses without upsetting the vital balance of an individual microbiome."--Jacket

Welcome to the Microbiome : Getting to Know the Trillions of Bacteria and Other Microbes In, On, and Around You. by Rob DeSalle( Recording )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Suddenly, research findings require a paradigm shift in our view of the microbial world. The Human Microbiome Project at the National Institutes of Health is well under way, and unprecedented scientific technology now allows the censusing of trillions of microbes inside and on our bodies as well as in the places where we live, work, and play. This intriguing, up-to-the-minute book for scientists and nonscientists alike explains what researchers are discovering about the microbe world and what the implications are for modern science and medicine

Nycteria parasites of Afrotropical insectivorous bats( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Graphical abstract: Highlights: Molecular Nycteria parasite phylogeny reveals two distinct Nycteria /bat assemblages. Robust prevalence and gametocytemia of Nycteria infections were found in insectivorous bats. Phylogenetic signatures of ancient Nycteria host-parasite congruence. Molecular evidence is given for additional members in Nycteria spp. complex. Abstract: Parasitic protozoan parasites have evolved many co-evolutionary paths towards stable transmission to their host population. Plasmodium spp., the causative agents of malaria, and related haemosporidian parasites are dipteran-borne eukaryotic pathogens that actively invade and use vertebrate erythrocytes for gametogenesis and asexual development, often resulting in substantial morbidity and mortality of the infected hosts. Here, we present results of a survey of insectivorous bats from tropical Africa, including new isolates of species of the haemosporidian genus Nycteria . A hallmark of these parasites is their capacity to infect bat species of distinct families of the two evolutionary distant chiropteran suborders. We did detect Nycteria parasites in both rhinolophid and nycterid bat hosts in geographically separate areas of Sub-Saharan Africa, however our molecular phylogenetic analyses support the separation of the parasites into two distinct clades corresponding to their host genera, suggestive of ancient co-divergence and low levels of host switching. For one clade of these parasites, cytochrome b genes could not be amplified and cytochrome oxidase I sequences showed unusually high rates of evolution, suggesting that the mitochondrial genome of these parasites may have either been lost or substantially altered. This haemosporidian parasite-mammalian host system also highlights that sequential population expansion in the liver and gametocyte formation is a successful alternative to intermediate erythrocytic replication cycles
