The evolution of phototrophic bacteria and photosynthesis in general is certainly an interesting but complex topic. It is commonly well accepted that anoxygenic phototrophy evolved well before the gradual oxygenation of...

Repost from BU Newsroom story by Cris Hay-Merchant Bellevue University Associate Professor John Kyndt collaborated with researchers at the University of Arizona and at GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research in...

Fabiola Aviles, one of our former Biology majors, is the lead author on an article describing the discovery of a new bacterial species. The species was isolated from the San Elijo...

You may not realize that, over 100 million years ago, Nebraska was covered by a large sea. This covered an estimated 20,000 acres, but now all that is left is salt...

It is not every day that an entire bacterial genus is discovered and reclassified. We are lucky when occasionally we find a new species, but that alone certainly does not redefine...

Mutualistic relationships that involve close cell–cell interactions are most studied between bacterial and eukaryotic interactions, for example between pathogens and eukaryotic hosts (plant or animal). However symbiotic relationships between bacteria themselves...

What do you get when you put a project manager with an electrical & electronics engineering degree, and a biochemist together in a lab? It sounds like the beginning of a...

The giant phototrophic bacterium Thiospirillum jenense was first discovered in 1838. Its large size (up to 100μm), spiral shape, orange-brown color, and formation of sulfur globules visible under the light microscope,...

With the recent growth in Natural Science courses and rapid development of the sustainability outdoor lab, the time was ripe to expand on the biology instructors for the science department. Dr....

For scientists, sequencing a genome is truly cause for celebration. Which is exactly why Bellevue University Science Lab faculty and students gathered recently at a pizza party to mark an important...
