    • Secrets of the East River


      from Tal Rastopchin Added 243 3 0

      This video is a short introduction into the microscopic life around us we take for granted. In this video, samples of clear water, mud, stagnant water, and algae were taken from the East River, and analyzed in an Omax 2000x microscope. With a homemade rig, these microorganisms, which are believed to be protists, nematodes, and several small moving bacteria, are caught and presented to the world, showing that the very mud you walked over on the banks of the East River was really a plethora of life.

              • Science Bulletins: Caving for Cures—Mining Drugs From Nature


                from AMNH Added 52 0 0

                Brian Bachmann, an assistant professor of chemistry at Vanderbilt University, has combined his professional interest in natural products drug production with his hobby of caving to set up the first systematic program to search for novel drugs produced by cave-dwelling microorganisms. Each microbe can produce tens of thousands of molecules, of which one to ten may have drug-like potential. Cave ecosystems are untapped reservoirs of biodiversity in which there is fierce competition for a limited supply of nutrients. Microbes that thrive in these highly competitive environments are good candidates for producing compounds that can be used to fight disease.

                • Science Bulletins: Our Microbiome—Identifying the Worlds Within


                  from AMNH Added 349 1 0

                  From the surface of our skin to deep inside our gut, humans are teeming with microbes. The trillions of microorganisms that inhabit humans make up 1 to 3 percent of our total mass and play a vital role in our everyday functions and overall health. More than 100,000 species of bacteria have been identified in the human body, though the population distribution of bacteria can vary greatly from individual to individual. Deciphering the complexity of the human microbiome will help determine new methods for health management and treatment of disease. This latest Human Bulletin from the American Museum of Natural History's Science Bulletins program is on display in the Hall of Human Origins until September 30, 2012. Science Bulletins is a production of the National Center for Science Literacy, Education, and Technology (NCSLET), part of the Department of Education at the American Museum of Natural History.
