Antibiotics represent one of the most successful forms of therapy in medicine. But the efficiency of antibiotics is compromised by a growing number of antibiotic-resistant pathogens. Antibiotic… Expand
CRISPR-Cas9 Based Engineering of Actinomycetal Genomes.
Bacteria of the order Actinomycetales are one of the most important sources of pharmacologically active and industrially relevant secondary metabolites. Unfortunately, many of them are still… Expand
The Identification and Characterization of Breast Cancer CTCs Competent for Brain Metastasis
EpCAM− CTCs isolated from breast cancer patients express markers needed to promote brain metastasis. Cancer Cells in Blood, Directed to the Brain Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) have been touted as… Expand
Risk factors for second urinary tract infection among college women.
To better understand the etiology of recurrent urinary tract infection (UTI), the authors followed a cohort of 285 female college students with first UTI for 6 months or until second UTI. A first UTI… Expand
Escherichia coli mediated urinary tract infections: are there distinct uropathogenic E. coli (UPEC) pathotypes?
A variety of virulence genes are associated with Escherichia coli mediated urinary tract infections. Particular sets of virulence factors shared by bacterial strains directing them through a… Expand
Virulence characteristics of Escherichia coli causing first urinary tract infection predict risk of second infection.
Escherichia coli causes most urinary tract infections (UTIs) in ambulatory populations. Several bacterial virulence factors occur more frequently among urinary E. coli isolates than among fecal… Expand

- 1 April 1997
Based on evolutionary computation (EC) concepts, we developed an adaptive evolutionary planner/navigator (EP/N) as a novel approach to path planning and navigation. The EP/N is characterized by… Expand

China remains by far the largest aquaculture producer in the world. However, biofilms formed by pathogenic Vibrio strains pose serious problems to marine aquaculture. To provide a strategy for… Expand
Molecular epidemiology of Escherichia coli mediated urinary tract infections.
Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most frequently acquired bacterial infections and Escherichia coli accounts for as many as 90% of all UTIs seen among ambulatory populations. Risk factors… Expand
Both Urinary and Rectal Escherichia coli Isolates Are Dominated by Strains of Phylogenetic Group B2
ABSTRACT To compare the genetic structures of uropathogenic and commensal Escherichia coli populations, a total of 181 urinary and rectal E. coli isolates were classified into intraspecies… Expand
