‘Bioprospectors’ find new enzyme, use it to improve antibiotic daptomycin‘Bioprospectors’ find new enzyme, use it to improve antibiotic daptomycin
 (2/7/2017 11:39:28 AM) A research team from Rice University, the University of Kentucky and the University of Oklahoma made new — and in some cases more effective — versions of the antibiotic daptomycin using an enzyme from a soil bacterium found in smoke vents of the Ruth Mullins coal fire.
Rice graduate student Brad Ochocki and ecologist Tom Miller invasive species work published in Nature Communications2017_MIller_Ochocki_Dispersion
 (1/30/2017 4:04:44 PM) Rice graduate student Brad Ochocki and ecologist Tom Miller, using the bean beetle as their model, found that generations born on the leading edge of an invasion are far more able to push on than those born further back. The team's results were reported in Nature Communications.
