    Relationships between community composition, productivity and invasion resistance in semi-natural bacterial microcosms

    Matt Lloyd Jones et al.
    Resident members of natural bacterial communities limit the growth of non-resident bacteria primarily by increasing overall community growth.

    Cryo-EM reveals new species-specific proteins and symmetry elements in the Legionella pneumophila Dot/Icm T4SS

    Michael J Sheedlo et al.
    Structural analysis of the type IV secretion system purified from Legionella pneumophila uncovers new complex components and symmetry mismatches.

    Adaptation and compensation in a bacterial gene regulatory network evolving under antibiotic selection

    Vishwa Patel, Nishad Matange
    Mutations in gene regulatory proteins set the stage for the evolution of antimicrobial resistance by shifting the fitness landscape of resistance-conferring mutations.

    Adult stem cell-derived complete lung organoid models emulate lung disease in COVID-19

    Courtney Tindle et al.
    An integrated stem cell-based disease modeling and computational approach demonstrates how proximal airway epithelium is critical for SARS-CoV-2 infectivity and distal alveolar cells are critical for simulating the host responses.

    Vaccination induces rapid protection against bacterial pneumonia via training alveolar macrophage in mice

    Hao Gu et al.
    Intranasal immunization of inactivated whole cell of some Gram-negative bacteria induces very rapid and efficient protection against bacterial pulmonary by training alveolar macrophage response, which can be harnessed to design rapid-effecting vaccine against multidrug-resistant bacteria infection.

    The roles of history, chance, and natural selection in the evolution of antibiotic resistance

    Alfonso Santos-Lopez et al.
    Selection imposed by antibiotics may dominate evolutionary forces acting on opportunistic pathogens like Acinetobacter baumannii, yet chance effects and a prior history in biofilm may constrain resistance and impose collateral sensitivities.

    Integrated single-cell analysis unveils diverging immune features of COVID-19, influenza, and other community-acquired pneumonia

    Alex R Schuurman et al.
    Different etiologies of community-acquired pneumonia evoke both shared and diverging immunological responses.

    A low Smc flux avoids collisions and facilitates chromosome organization in Bacillus subtilis

    Anna Anchimiuk et al.
    Bacterial chromosome folding by DNA loop extrusion is here shown to rely on avoidance of SMC collisions by low SMC abundance, clustering of loading sites, efficient translocation, and rare unloading.

    Development of antibacterial compounds that constrain evolutionary pathways to resistance

    Yanmin Zhang et al.
    Integrated multi-scale, multi-tool approach to design novel 'evolution drugs' which can delay the emergence of antibiotic resistance by constraining bacterial evolutionary escape strategies.

    A novel decoy strategy for polymyxin resistance in Acinetobacter baumannii

    Jaeeun Park et al.
    Outer membrane vesicles serve as decoys to reduce the chance of direct polymyxin B (PMB) binding to cells, which partly explains why many clinical isolates and microbial communities can be protected against PMB treatment.
