Complex interactions between pathogenic bacteria, the microbiota, and the host can modify pathogen physiology and behavior. We describe two different experimental approaches to study microbe-microbe interactions in in vitro systems containing surface-associated microbial populations. One method is the application of RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) to determine the transcriptional changes in pathogenic bacteria in response to microbial interspecies interactions. The other method combines flow cell devices for bacterial cultivation and growth with high-resolution bioimaging to analyze the microscale structural organization of interacting microbial populations within mixed-species biofilms.

Plant-microbe interactions are great model systems to study co-evolutionary dynamics across multiple timescales. However, mechanistic research on plant-microbe interactions has often been conducted wi...
Plants and microbes are dependent on chemical signals as a means of inter-kingdom communication. There are two predicted paths for the evolution of these signals. Ritualization, the evolution of signa...
Natural products have long played a pivotal role in the development of therapeutics for a variety of diseases. Traditionally, soil and marine environments have provided a rich reservoir from which div...
The attachment of bacteria to roots constitutes the first physical step in many plant-microbe interactions. These interactions exert both positive and negative influences on agricultural systems depen...
It is well established that gut microbes and their metabolic products regulate host metabolism. The interactions between the host and its gut microbiota are highly dynamic and complex. In this review ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the PMPA gel, which kills microbes, in HIV-infected and HIV-uninfected women. The majority of new HIV infections occur through heterosexual contac...
The intent of this protocol is to salvage human-related material that is normally destined for destruction, so it can be used in infection-related scientific studies.

The purpose of this study is to understand the effect that T helper 2 (Th2) blockade has on well-described pathophysiological features of Atopic Dermatitis (AD), for example: barrier, epid...
Host-microbe interactions play a key role in brain development and function and in the etiology of neurodevelopmental disorders. Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a hetero...
A method where a culturing surface inoculated with microbe is exposed to small disks containing known amounts of a chemical agent resulting in a zone of inhibition (usually in millimeters) of growth of the microbe corresponding to the susceptibility of the strain to the agent.
Non-susceptibility of a microbe to the action of METHICILLIN, a semi-synthetic penicillin derivative.
Ability of a microbe to survive under given conditions. This can also be related to a colony's ability to replicate.
Nonsusceptibility of a microbe to the action of ampicillin, a penicillin derivative that interferes with cell wall synthesis.
Research techniques that focus on study designs and data gathering methods in human and animal populations.
The process of gene expression is used by eukaryotes, prokaryotes, and viruses to generate the macromolecular machinery for life. Steps in the gene expression process may be modulated, including the transcription, RNA splicing, translation, and post-tran...
DNA sequencing is the process of determining the precise order of nucleotides within a DNA molecule. During DNA sequencing, the bases of a small fragment of DNA are sequentially identified from signals emitted as each fragment is re-synthesized from a ...
