A holistic insight of mycobacteriophage induced changes in mycobacterial cells
This investigation has led to the development of facile tools necessary for investigating mycobacteriophage-mycobacteria interactions by means of microscopic methods, and observed significant increase in DNA fragmentation as well as membrane depolarization, which are indicative of occurrence of PCD. Expand
Correlative nanoscopy: A multimodal approach to molecular resolution
A brief historical view on correlative microscopy, the progress of correlative AFM-super-resolution microscopy in biological research is summarized, and the inherently label-free imaging capabilities of the AFM are fundamental to complement the fluorescence images. Expand
Multiscale Electron Microscopy for the Study of Viral Replication Organelles
The first cryotomography analyses of viral ROs are highlighted, which have led to the discovery of macromolecular complexes that may serve as RO channels that control the export of newly-made viral RNA. Expand
Virus identification in electron microscopy images by residual mixed attention network
The proposed automated method contributes to the development of medical virology, which provides virologists with a high-accuracy approach to recognize viruses as well as assist in the diagnosis of viruses. Expand
A Technical Introduction to Transmission Electron Microscopy for Soft-Matter: Imaging, Possibilities, Choices, and Technical Developments.
The technical considerations of imaging with electrons in terms of optics, technology, samples and processing, and targeted soft materials are summarized and recent advances and their potential for application to soft matter chemistry are highlighted. Expand
A historical and political epistemology of microbes
The historical co‐evolution of microbiology, bacteriology, and virology, framed within industrial and agricultural contexts, as well as their role in colonial and national history between the end of the 19th century and the first decades of the 20th century are traced. Expand
Approaches to optimize therapeutic bacteriophage and bacteriophage-derived products to combat bacterial infections
A short overview of the clinical phage application including their use in military medicine is presented and the genotypic and phenotypic properties of a potential “ideal” therapeutic phage are discussed. Expand


Phage and the Origins of Molecular Biology
An expanded edition of the acclaimed collection of 35 essays by pioneers of microbiology, first published in 1966 as a 60th-birthday tribute to Max Delbruck.
Virus taxonomy: classification and nomenclature of viruses. Seventh report of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses.
This report builds on the accumulated taxonomic construction of the eight previous reports dating back to 1971 and records the proceedings of the Committee since publication of the last report in 2005. Expand
Diagnostic electron microscopy is still a timely and rewarding method☆
The system of External Quality Assessment on EM virus diagnosis (EQA-EMV) established in 1994 by the laboratory and its achievements, and the indications for diagnostic EM are discussed, fundamental for a continuing future adaptation. Expand
