HARDSCIENCEONLYME: Biofilms Made Easy

I had to post this image and encourage anyone interested in biofilms to go visit the website that hosts this interactive introduction to biofilms. Some of you know that biofilms have been implicated in Lyme disease. Drs. McDonald and Sapi recently published on this topic. The gist of the matter is that biofilms may be one of the ways in which bacteria persist in the body. They can provide a protective covering that antibiotics cannot penetrate. It’s a pretty esoteric subject matter, but this website describing how they work is pretty down home. Give it a visit if you get a chance. And, kudos to the University of Montana for making this available to folks like us who just need simple explanations so we know how things work! The link is after the jump.

 The microfilm extravaganza is here.

  1. All the time, different people, which really require the custom writing, do not really know the right way to get that. But that is available to buy writing paper in the advanced admission essay writing service. This is a natural thing for some people.

  2. Now people order custom essays and buy term papers choosing essay writing services and often some students buy custom essay papers referring to this post. That’s very smashing stuff, thanks!

  3. Different people that want have high grades find a trustworthy paper writing to buy their research paper from. These things we do also.

  4. Kacy I know your struggle! I’m 32 and have been sick for about 16 years. I just found out I have Lyme about 2 weeks ago and haven’t been ttreead yet. Life isn’t easy but we must make the most of it You will be in my prayers.
