BACKGROUND Many human microbial infectious diseases including dental caries are polymicrobial in nature. How these complex multi-species communities evolve from a healthy to a diseased state is not well understood. Although many health- or disease-associated oral bacteria have been characterized in vitro, their physiology within the complex oral microbiome(More)
BACKGROUND Yersinia pestis is a gram-negative bacterium that causes plague, a disease linked historically to the Black Death in Europe during the Middle Ages and to several outbreaks during the modern era. Metabolism in Y. pestis displays remarkable flexibility and robustness, allowing the bacterium to proliferate in both warm-blooded mammalian hosts and(More)
High-throughput (HTP) technologies offer the capability to evaluate the genome, proteome, and metabolome of an organism at a global scale. This opens up new opportunities to define complex signatures of disease that involve signals from multiple types of biomolecules. However, integrating these data types is difficult due to the heterogeneity of the data.(More)
Base dynamics, heretofore observed only at TpA steps in DNA, were investigated as a function of sequence context by NMR spectroscopy. The large amplitude conformational dynamics have been previously observed in TnAn segments where n > or = 2. In order to determine whether the dynamic characteristics occur in more general sequence contexts, we examined four(More)
