The gut microbiota and epilepsy: Intriguing research and the road ahead

International League Against Epilepsy

An increasing number of studies are finding intimate communication between the gut and brain, as well as complex interplay among the gut microbiome, the brain and the rest of the body. But does the gut affect epilepsy? More specifically, can certain populations of bacteria predispose to seizures, and can we harness the power of the microbiome to stop seizures?

Berkeley Lab Technology Provides Clarity Amid Hawaiian Water Contamination Concerns

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

For years, routine testing has shown that watersheds of the Mahaulepu Valley and Waikomo Stream in southeast Kauai frequently contain high counts of potentially pathogenic fecal indicator bacteria (FIB). To better understand the cause of the high FIB counts, the DOH commissioned a study by Berkeley Lab microbial ecologists Gary Andersen and Eric Dubinsky. After using a powerful microbial detection tool called the PhyloChip, the scientists concluded that most of the past monitoring results were false positives.

Revealing Viruses’ Hidden Influence

Department of Energy, Office of Science

Scientists studying bacteria and other microbes didn’t anticipate their data would hold the key to studying viruses. But new techniques are allowing researchers from DOE's Joint Genome Institute to use this data to gain insights about viruses’ genes and their role in the environment.

Big Help from Small Microbes: Electron Transfers to Produce Fuels and Fertilizer

Department of Energy, Office of Science

The team at the BETCy Energy Frontier Research Center is learning how electron transfer processes drive energy-intensive reactions that produce ammonia and other chemicals. Knowing how electrons move could lead to processes that let industrial reactions soar over energy barriers.
