Surveillance of Acute Respiratory Infections Using Community-Submitted Symptoms and Specimens for Molecular Diagnostic Testing
The GoViral platform evaluated whether a cohort of lay volunteers could, and would find it useful to, contribute self-reported symptoms online and to compare specimen types for self-collected diagnostic information of sufficient quality for respiratory infection surveillance.
Tellurite Adsorption onto Bacterial Surfaces.
Analysis of surface-associated molecules shows that the EPS of B. subtilis contain proteins, which indicates that sulfhydryl binding in EPS plays a key role in tellurite adsorption on bacterial surfaces.
Tellurate enters Escherichia coli K-12 cells via the SulT-type sulfate transporter CysPUWA
Results indicate that tellurate enters E. coli cells to cause toxic effects via the CysPUWA sulfate transporter, and that implementation of the mutation restored tellurate sensitivity and uptake.
The role of cysteine in tellurate reduction and toxicity
Exposure of E. coli K-12 to tellurate results in reduction to elemental tellurium (Te) and the formation of intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) and the source of ROS in the cytoplasm of tellurate-exposed cells is indicated.
Breathing Iron: Molecular Mechanism of Microbial Iron Reduction by Shewanella oneidensis
The chapter highlights the mechanistic details associated with each of the four Fe(III) reduction pathways of S. oneidensis, including a concluding discussion of the future research directions for each pathway.

Comparing the dispersal patterns of male and female Parnassius smintheus among 18 subpopulations over 8 years using the Virtual Migration Model finds males and females are predicted to respond in similar ways to reduced meadow area and increased forest isolation.
Direct estimates of metapopulation capacity from dispersal show high interannual variability, but little effect of recent forest encroachment on network persistence

The findings suggest that the production of reactive sulfur metabolites by soil microorganisms and the formation of soluble selenosulfur complexes can promote selenium mobilization during chemical weathering.

The complete genome sequence of this strain was isolated from nitrate- and toxic metal-contaminated subsurface sediment at the Oak Ridge Reservation (ORR) to provide genomic insight into its strategies for survival at this mixed-waste site.
Anoxic photochemical weathering of pyrite on Archean continents
Sulfur is an essential element of life that is assimilated by Earth’s biosphere through the chemical breakdown of pyrite. On the early Earth, pyrite weathering by atmospheric oxygen was severely…
