BACKGROUND The spectrum of bacteria associated with bacterial vaginosis (BV) has recently expanded through taxonomic changes and the use of molecular methods. These methods have yet to be used in large-scale epidemiological studies in Africa where BV is highly prevalent. METHODS An analysis of samples obtained during a clinical trial of the management of(More)

Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus are the most prevalent pathogens in airway infections of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients. We studied how these pathogens coexist and interact with each other. Clinical isolates of both species were retrieved from adult CF patients. Culture supernatants from 63 P. aeruginosa isolates triggered a wide range of(More)
Emergency management is a diverse field. Effective disaster management involves knowledge of various subjects as well as work experience in all aspects related to mitigation, planning, response, and recovery efforts. One field not being fully exploited by disaster management is the use of geospatial tools in the form of Geographic Information Systems (GIS),(More)
Can populations self organize a crisis response? This is a field report on the first two efforts in a continuing series of exercises termed " Exercise24 or x24. " The first Exercise24 focused on Southern California, while the second (24 Europe) focused on the Balkan area of Eastern Europe. These exercises attempted to demonstrate that self-organizing groups(More)
We describe early experiments in the adoption of the OptIPuter architecture to provide data-intensive capabilities to several remote users of a large-scale, multi-year effort to organize and make publicly available data describing a wide variety of marine microbial ecologies, their genomic content, and the local environments in which they live—marine(More)
