At the start of my PhD I had an interesting discussion with my colleague Florian Beyer (co-author on this paper) about the ecological features of synthetic membranes. This discussion set the objective of this paper; understanding which physiological features bacteria require to colonize synthetic membranes. Our quest has uncovered valuable information that pinpoints bacterial weaknesses that could potentially be used to control membrane biofouling.
Research on understudied proteins in Toxoplasma gondii gives researchers new insights into how this parasite maintains its structural stability and provides a tool for studying a structure previously observed only through electron microscopy
Our circadian clock controls many physiological functions, including our metabolism and immune responses. Since our susceptibility to infection is dependent on the time of day, can viruses exploit circadian pathways to their advantage? Our study shows how the circadian regulators Bmal1 and Rev-Erbα regulate flavivirus replication.

Register to Nature Portfolio Microbiology Community
The Nature Portfolio Microbiology Community provides a forum for the sharing and discussion of ideas and opinions about microbiology. Through posts, discussion, image and video content, the community space can be used by members to communicate with each other, and with editors, about topics ranging from the science itself through to policy, society and day to day life. It is also a place to learn more about the activities of Nature Microbiology's editors and the policies and practices of the journal.
