    The Acinetobacter baumannii Mla system and glycerophospholipid transport to the outer membrane

    Cassandra Kamischke et al.
    An Acinetobacter baumannii ABC transporter likely facilitates transport of glycerophospholipids from the inner to the outer membrane.

    Preacinetobactin not acinetobactin is essential for iron uptake by the BauA transporter of the pathogen Acinetobacter baumannii

    Lucile Moynié et al.
    The pathogen Acinetobacter baumannii recognises preacinetobactin not acinetobactin, yet appears likely to translocate both compounds through a mixed complex.

    Inter-species population dynamics enhance microbial horizontal gene transfer and spread of antibiotic resistance

    Robert M Cooper et al.
    Killing their neighbors allows bacteria to steal genes, including antibiotic resistance genes, which we observed under a microscope, quantified, modeled, and predicted potentially guiding strategies to combat it.

    Epidemiology and burden of multidrug-resistant bacterial infection in a developing country

    Cherry Lim et al.
    The burden of antimicrobial resistance in Thailand is deteriorating over time, and 19,122 deaths in the country in 2010 were excess deaths caused by multidrug-resistant bacterial infection.

    Metabolite exchange between microbiome members produces compounds that influence Drosophila behavior

    Caleb N Fischer et al.
    Interactions between fungal and bacterial microbiome members alter Drosophila melanogaster's chemical environment, affecting host behavior and survival.

    Insights into the key determinants of membrane protein topology enable the identification of new monotopic folds

    Sonya Entova et al.
    Key sequence motifs, defined using the first reported structure of a monotopic membrane protein with a reentrant helix, enable identification of new monotopic membrane protein families previously predicted as membrane spanning.

    An updated phylogeny of the Alphaproteobacteria reveals that the parasitic Rickettsiales and Holosporales have independent origins

    Sergio A Muñoz-Gómez et al.
    Diverse sophisticated phylogenetic analyses update the phylogeny of the Alphaproteobacteria and show that the parasitic Holosporales is a derived group within the Rhodospirillales order which comprises primarily free-living alphaproteobacteria.

    Mapping microbial ecosystems and spoilage-gene flow in breweries highlights patterns of contamination and resistance

    Nicholas A Bokulich et al.
    Mapping microbial landscapes in indoor environments can predict how contaminants and spoilage resistance genes propagate within food-production environments, yielding novel insight for controlling spoilage.

    Evidence for loss and reacquisition of alcoholic fermentation in a fructophilic yeast lineage

    Carla Gonçalves et al.
    Comparative genomics coupled with genetic and biochemical studies show that central carbon metabolism in fungi can be remodeled by genes originating from bacteria.
