Soil factors controlling the toxicity of copper and zinc to microbial processes in Australian soils.
Abstract-Two soil microbial processes, substrate-induced nitrification (SIN) and substrate-induced respiration (SIR), were measured in the topsoils of 12 Australian field trials that were amendedExpand

Bioassays of quorum sensing compounds using Agrobacterium tumefaciens and Chromobacterium violaceum.
In most bacteria, a global level of regulation exists involving intercellular communication via the production and response to cell density-dependent signal molecules. This cell density-dependentExpand

A previously uncharacterized gene, yjfO (bsmA), influences Escherichia coli biofilm formation and stress response.
Bacteria growing as surface-adherent biofilms are better able to withstand chemical and physical stresses than their unattached, planktonic counterparts. Using transcriptional profiling andExpand

Dietary patterns and cognitive decline in an Australian study of ageing
The aim of this paper was to investigate the association of three well-recognised dietary patterns with cognitive change over a 3-year period. Five hundred and twenty-seven healthy participants fromExpand

Bacterial biofilm formation under microgravity conditions.
Although biofilm formation is widely documented on Earth, it has not been demonstrated in the absence of gravity. To explore this possibility, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, suspended in sterile buffer, wasExpand

Methods of Studying Biofilms
This chapter reviews many commonly used organisms, experimental approaches, and techniques used for the growth and study of biofilms. Here, the authors focus on commonly used approaches with aExpand

Cell-Cell Influences on Bacterial Community Development in Aquatic Biofilms
ABSTRACT Dialysis tubing containing spent culture media, when placed in a lake, was colonized by a low diversity of bacteria, whereas abiotic controls had considerable diversity. Changes were seen inExpand
