Prestigious grant awarded to team studying how microbes make ‘nanowires’ to exhale electrons The rising temperatures threatening life on our planet are caused in part by microbes that produce 50% of atmospheric methane, a gas 30 times more potent than CO2 at trapping heat.
New study shows for the first time the ability of a marine bacterium to convert apple pulp waste into a novel exopolysaccharide Researchers form the Biochemical Engineering Research Lab at UCIBIO-NOVA, demonstrated for the first time the ability of a marine bacterium, Alteromonas macleodii Mo169, to grow on apple pulp waste, a low-cost feedstock, as sole substrate, and secrete high amounts of a novel exopolysaccharide.
New bacterial species identified by UCIBIO researchers named to honor female scientists UCIBIO researchers form the BacT_Drugs Research Lab at UCIBIO-Porto identified eight new bacterial species of the Corynebacterium genus from urine samples of women. The publication coincided with the month of celebration of International Women's Day, and the researchers named the new species in honor of women who changed the world or female scientists, who made significant contributions to science b
