A flexible state-space approach for the modeling of metabolic networks I: Development of mathematical methods
We introduce a novel, flexible, optimization-based mathematical framework for the modeling of arbitrarily complex metabolic networks: topological metabolic analysis (TMA). The framework is adapted from state-space approaches used by Manousiouthakis and co-workers for the representation of complex he...
Development of cyanobacterium-based biofilms and their in vitro evaluation for agriculturally useful traits.
The ability of cyanobacteria to be useful as matrices for agriculturally important bacteria was evaluated. Biofilms were generated with the selected strain Anabaena torulosa after co-culturing with Azotobacter chroococcum, Pseudomonas striata, Serratia marcescens, and Mesorhizobium c...
In situ monitoring of antibiotic susceptibility of bacterial biofilms in a microfluidic device.
We present a simple, novel one-pot assay for the analysis of antibiotic susceptibility of bacterial biofilms using a microfluidics system where continuous concentration gradients of antibiotics are generated. The results of minimal biofilm eradication concentration (MBEC) clearly confirm that the co...
The horizontal flow of the plasmid resistome: clues from inter-generic similarity networks.
We constructed a network in which all the sequences that most likely underwent horizontal gene transfer (HGT) were linked together. The analysis of this network revealed that either geographical barriers or taxonomical distance can often be overcome since phylogenetically unrelated bacteria, and/or...
Beneficial bacteria of agricultural importance.
The rhizosphere is the soil-plant root interphase and in practice consists of the soil adhering to the root besides the loose soil surrounding it. Plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) are potential agents for the biological control of plant pathogens. A biocontrol strain should be able to pro...
[Diversity of oil-degrading bacteria isolated form the Indian Ocean sea surface].
We obtained 51 unique strains of 29 genera after screening via morphological, physiological, biochemical and 16S rRNA analyses. They mainly belonged to a and gamma-Proteobacteria. The four genera Alcanivorax (accounting for 18%), Novosphingobium (10%), Marinobacter (6%) and Thalassospira (6%) were t...

Antisense antibiotics: a brief review of novel target discovery and delivery.
The nightmare of multi-drug resistant bacteria will still haunt if no panacea is ever found. Efforts on seeking desirable natural products with bactericidal property and screening chemically modified derivatives of traditional antibiotics have lagged behind the emergence of new multi...
