1 Chérie, passe-moi tes microbes ! - San-Antonio
Auteur : San-Antonio
Genre : Policier et suspense
Tu ne m'ôteras pas de l'idée que si nous n'avions pas aperçu M. Félix, menottes aux poignets, un après-midi, à la Porte Saint-Martin, rien de tout cela ne serait arrivé. Qu'en tout cas, ça se serait passé autrement. Et que nous a-t-il dit, M. Félix ? Ceci : "Oui, messieurs, je montre mon sexe dans les couloirs du Métropolitain, c'est vrai. Je ne suis pas particulièrement sadique, enfin pas davantage que n'importe qui ; mais si j'agis de la sorte, c'est pour créer de l'émotion. En exhibant ma b... je l'exprime ; j'accomplis bon gré mal gré un acte littéraire. "Complètement azimuté M. Félix ! Remarque, en réfléchissant bien : même s'il s'était pas fait poirer à montrer Coquette dans le métro, tout ça serait arrivé quand même.

12 The Microbes Fight Back - Laura Bowater
Auteur : Laura Bowater
Genre : Médecine
Antibiotics are familiar drugs to us all, so familiar that we may take them for granted. They allow us to survive life-threatening infections, and allow us to protect the animals we farm for food. Many antibiotics have now become ineffective against common diseases, and there are few alternative treatments to replace them. In this topical popular science book, Laura Bowater, Professor of Microbiology Education and Engagement at Norwich Medical School, considers the past, present and uncertain future of antibiotics.

15 C'est grave, Dr Darwin ?. L'évolution, les microbes et nous - Samuel Alizon
Auteur : Samuel Alizon
Genre : Sciences sociales
Comment de nouvelles maladies infectieuses apparaissent-elles et évoluent-elles ? Pourquoi certains antibiotiques cessent-ils d'être efficaces ? Les changements des modes de vie et les politiques de santé publique affectent-ils l'évolution des agents pathogènes ? Et dans quelle mesure l'espèce humaine est-elle façonnée par ses maladies ?
La médecine évolutionniste permet d'éclairer ces questions. De fait, les micro-organismes offrent l'un des exemples les plus remarquables d'évolution rapide. Le virus du sida, survenu voici environ un siècle, a connu cinq fois plus de générations que l'homme moderne depuis son apparition il y a cent mille ans. La lutte est donc déséquilibrée, d'autant que nous sommes des milliards mais que les microbes sont des milliards de milliards.

24 Of Microbes and Men (Synthetic Biology) (Essay) - The Hastings Center Report
Auteur : The Hastings Center Report
Genre : Science de la vie
It is a cliche in commentary on synthetic biology that there is no universal agreement on what synthetic biology is. Some see it as an incremental extension of earlier genetic technologies for modifying organisms. Others see it as the beginning of real genetic engineering, on the grounds that what has passed for "genetic engineering" up until now has been too haphazard to merit the term. The very grandest definitions of the field, on the other hand, do not limit it to any particular technology; they describe the field simply as a matter of designing and constructing biological systems for useful purposes. (1) Given the disagreement about what synthetic biology is, we might expect a similar range of views about whether it should be done. Some of the earlier, simpler technologies for genetic engineering struck some critics as deeply troubling, on grounds that they represented an intrins

26 Microbes and the Master: How God Uses the Brainless to Expose Human Folly - Mike L Anderson
Auteur : Mike L Anderson
Genre : Religion et spiritualité
If "two are better than one," then many brains will be better than none, right? It is going to seem bizarre and this is not going to go down well with the intellectually proud, but scientists are discovering that microbes without brains can make decisions that are wiser than those made by humans. If finding wisdom in extremely stupid creatures seems odd, bear in mind that locusts do not have much of a brain and yet the Bible mentions them as illustrations of extreme wisdom. Perhaps wisdom is quite different to intelligence as evolutionary psychologists are saying. Used wisely, intelligence is a great blessing from God, but used foolishly, as we will see, it is a terrible curse. These microbes are simple creatures without a brain and with big problems. Their environment is replete with risks. Yet they are able to thrive by assessing and responding appropriately and proportionately. How mi

28 Microbes in the Gut: A Digestable Account of Host-Symbiont Interactions. - Indian Journal of Medical Research
Auteur : Indian Journal of Medical Research
Genre : Science de la vie
The human bowel is host to a diverse group of bacteria with over 500 different bacterial species contributing to this diversity. Until recently these bacteria were regarded as residents without any specific functions. The last two decades have seen a radical change in our understanding of the interactions between the gut flora and their eukaryotic hosts and there is a growing appreciation of the spectrum of functions performed by these symbionts. Intestinal bacteria are recognized for their role in nutrient absorption, mucosal barrier function, angiogenesis, morphogenesis and postnatal maturation of intestinal cell lineages, intestinal motility and more importantly maturation of gut associated lymphoid tissue (GALT). Although gut flora are implicated in certain pathological disorders, their remarkable contributions to health and homeostasis of the host need to be recognized and understoo

29 Of Mice, Men, and Microbes - David R. Harper & Andrea S. Meyer
Auteur : David R. Harper & Andrea S. Meyer
Genre : Science de la vie
In May 1993, a cluster of cases of a lethal disease among healthy young people brought the attention of the world to the southwestern deserts. A previously unknown disease was killing up to 80% of the people it infected.The reaction in the area and across the nation mixed fear, lack of information, and the struggles of doctors to save the victims of an unknown killer with hard science and the age old rhythmns of the desert. What came out was the story of a virus that had been killing since man arrived in the American continents, Hantavirus, with deadly relatives across the Americas and across the world. This book explains why and how the virus kills, and why it is still killing today. Why all of the science aimed at a virus identified back in 1993 has not brought a vaccine or a cure is part of the story, as is how that killer virus fits into the story of "new" diseases across the world.T

37 Role of Rhizospheric Microbes in Soil - Vijay Singh Meena
Auteur : Vijay Singh Meena
Genre : Agriculture
In any ecosystem, plant and microbe interaction is inevitable. They not only co-exist but also support each other’s survival and provide sustenance in stressful environments. Agro-ecosystems in many regions around the globe are affected by high temperatures, soil salinity/alkalinity, low pH and metal toxicity. High salinity and severe draught are other major constraints affecting agricultural practices and also plants in the wild.

A major limiting factor affecting global agricultural productivity is environmental stresses. Apart from decreasing yield, they also have a devastating impact on plant growth. Plants battle with various kind of stresses with the help of symbiotic associations with the rhizospheric microbes. Naturally occuring plant-microbe interactions facilitate the survival of plants under these stressful conditions.

Auteur : Patrick Forterre & Teresa Lavender Fagan
Genre : Science et nature
At the close of the 1970s, the two-domain classification scheme long used by most biologists—prokaryotes versus eukaryotes—was upended by the discovery of an entirely new group of organisms: archaea. Initially thought to be bacteria, these single-celled microbes—many of which were first found in seemingly unlivable habitats like the volcanic hot springs of Yellowstone National Park—were in fact so different at molecular and genetic levels as to constitute a separate, third domain beside bacteria and eukaryotes. Their discovery sparked a conceptual revolution in our understanding of the evolution of life, and Patrick Forterre was—and still is—at the vanguard of this revolution.

In Microbes from Hell, one of the world’s leading experts on archaea and hyperthermophiles, or organisms that have evolved to flourish in extreme temperatures, offers a colorful, eng

By examining how pathogenic determinants have evolved in concert with their hosts, often overcoming innate and adaptive immune mechanisms, the book takes a fresh look at the selective processes that have shaped their evolution.

Introductory chapters ground the reader in principal evolutionary themes such as phylogenetics and genetic exchange, building a basis of knowledge for later chapters covering advances in genetic tools, how pathogens exchange genetic material in nature, and the common themes of evolutionary adaptation that lead to disease in different hosts.

42 The Resistance Phenomenon in Microbes and Infectious Disease Vectors - Stacey L. Knobler
Auteur : Stacey L. Knobler
Genre : Médecine
The resistance topic is timely given current events. The emergence of mysterious new diseases, such as SARS, and the looming threat of bioterrorist attacks remind us of how vulnerable we can be to infectious agents. With advances in medical technologies, we have tamed many former microbial foes, yet with few new antimicrobial agents and vaccines in the pipeline, and rapidly increasing drug resistance among infectious microbes, we teeter on the brink of loosing the upperhand in our ongoing struggle against these foes, old and new. The Resistance Phenomenon in Microbes and Infectious Disease Vectors examines our understanding of the relationships among microbes, disease vectors, and human hosts, and explores possible new strategies for meeting the challenge of resistance.

43 Microbes and Enzymes in Soil Health and Bioremediation - Ashok Kumar & Swati Sharma
Auteur : Ashok Kumar & Swati Sharma
Genre : Agriculture
Microbial enzymes play a vital role in maintaining soil health and removing pollutants from contaminated land. Soil microflora is closely associated with maintaining soil fertility, and the use of chemical pesticides, fertilizers and other volatile sprays in agriculture threatens the health ofthe microbial population in the soil. Every single particle of healthy soil contains millions of bacteria, which interact with the nutrients available, sustaining the nutrient cycle and making this microflora an essential component of life on earth. How do microbes help in the nutrient cycle? Either by intracellular digestion of macromolecules and converting these into smaller units in their metabolic pathways, or by secreting enzymes into the extracellular environment to facilitate the conversion of complex macromolecules into micro-molecules that can be easily absorbed by other living

44 Effect of the Transformed Lactobacillus with Phytase Gene on Pig Production Performance, Nutrient Digestibility, Gut Microbes and Serum Biochemical Indexes (Report) - Asian - Australasian Journal of Animal Sciences
Auteur : Asian - Australasian Journal of Animal Sciences
Genre : Secteurs et professions
INTRODUCTION Phytic acid exists in the diets of pigs and serves as a P reservoir. It is such a powerful chelating agent that the solubility and digestibility of many nutrients are reduced by the formation of phytate complexes (Selle, 1997). Phytase can catalyze the hydrolysis of phytate and release organic P and phytate-bound nutrients (Wodzinski, 1996; Murry et al., 1997). Because there is little phytase activity in the digestive tracts of the non-ruminant animals (Bitar and Reinhold, 1972), these animals can't use nutrients effectively, specially the phytate-bound P (Sweeten, 1992), resulting in a significant loss of P to the environment. The addition of phytase in animal diet can reduce P excretion by 30-50% for decreasing P pollution as well as reduce the supplementation of inorganic P in animal diets (Selle, 1997).

50 L'homme et les microbes XVIIe-Xxe siècle - Pierre Darmon
Auteur : Pierre Darmon
Genre : Histoire
En 1674, le micrographe hollandais Leewenhoeck découvre qu'une goutte d'eau de pluie grouille d'animalcules. Ainsi commence, fort modestement, la saga des microbes. Longtemps les micro-organismes resteront des êtres marginaux indignes de l'attention des grands savants, et c'est dans les salons et les cabinets d'amateurs que le microscope trouvera d'abord refuge, bien que les premières théories microbiennes des maladies infectieuses aient été imaginées dès le XVIIe siècle.
A partir de 1880, la révolution pasteurienne submerge tout. Enfin démasqués, les germes pathogènes se heurtent à l'arsenal des vaccins et des sérums. L'ancienne hygiène hippocratique, fondée sur les apparences et plus dangereuse que bienfaisante, s'efface derrière la nouvelle hygiène antimicrobienne qui s'attaque enfin aux sources vives de la maladie infectieuse. La purification des eaux potables
