Advances in next-generation sequencing technology along with decreasing costs now allow the microbial population, or microbiome, of a location to be determined relatively quickly. This research reveals that microbial communities are more diverse and complex than ever imagined. New and specialized instrumentation is required to investigate, with high spatial and temporal resolution, the dynamic biochemical environment that is created by microbes, which allows them to exist in every corner of the… 
Nanoparticles for Signaling in Biodiagnosis and Treatment of Infectious Diseases
Several point-of-care (POC) assays have been proposed that can offer results faster, easier and at lower cost than conventional techniques and can even be used in remote regions for viral diagnosis.
Detection of Pseudomonas aeruginosa quorum sensing molecules at an electrified liquid|liquid micro-interface through facilitated proton transfer.
A proof-of-concept electrochemical method employing a micro-interface between water and oil (w/o) held at the tip of a pulled borosilicate glass capillary is presented, which targets small molecules produced by P. aeruginosa colonies as signalling factors that control colony growth in a pseudo-multicellular process known as quorum sensing (QS).
Bacterial Sample Concentration and Culture Monitoring Using a PEG-Based Osmotic System with Inline Impedance and Voltammetry Measurements
Impedance measurements using graphite electrodes were used to detect the increase in culture medium conductivity due to bacteria growth in real time along with simultaneous voltammetric monitoring of

The concept and future prospects of soil health
Soil health is the continued capacity of soil to function as a vital living ecosystem that sustains plants, animals and humans, and connects agricultural and soil science to policy, stakeholder needs
Healthy Soils for Productivity and Sustainable Development in Agriculture
A healthy soil is considered a dynamic living system that is capable of providing multiple benefits to ecosystems such as sustaining plant and animal production and health, enhancing or maintaining
