Mechanisms of antibiotic resistance
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. AntibioticExpand

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 stillExpand

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 UTIExpand

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 aExpand

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 fecalExpand

Adaptive evolutionary planner/navigator for mobile robots
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 byExpand

Inhibition of Vibrio biofilm formation by a marine actinomycete strain A66
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 forExpand

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 intraspeciesExpand
