Bio 3 General Microbiology, Short Assignment #2 VIDEO PRESENTATION: “New or Improved” you are tasked with exploring a new microbiology technology or new drugs or antibiotics that might help hospitals and clinical laboratories. Pick one of the topics below and prepare a short video presentation/recording (~ 4 – 7 minutes long). (can write our script) 1) How the new microbiology technology or antibiotic or drug works. 2) What it may be used for (e.g. what does the device or drug or antibiotic target, what is the chemical structure, how is the technology deployed) to help patient healthcare. 3) What hospitals and clinics will need to do to prepare to successfully offer the new microbiology technology, drug or antibiotic. 4) Be sure to cite and show any sources you use in APA format and to include/show an APA format bibliography. Pick one to prepare a video recording/presentation on: 1) Use of Mass Spectrometry in clinical microbiology (MALDI-TOF MS). 2) New DNA sequencing methods in development, e.g. Solid State Nanopores, Tunneling Currents, RNAP, Microscopy based techniques, etc. 3) Use of CRISPR/Cas 9 to genetically manipulate antibiotic resistant microorganisms, toward “programmable sensitivity”. 4) Phage therapy: Use of bacteriophage as a technology to fight bacterial infections. 5) Antimicrobial synthetic polymers: Guanidinium-functionalized polycarbonates or “Ninja polymers”. 6) Pathogen specific Monoclonal Antibody therapy for multi drug resistant bacteria. 7) Antimicrobial nanoparticles: metallic, polymeric, lipid based; liposomes, solid lipid nanoparticles, nanostructure lipid carriers. 8) Synthetic retinoid antibiotics. 9) Delafloxacin, a new fluoroquinolone antibiotic. 10) Pretomanid, a new anti-TB antibiotic 11) Antibiotic combinations therapy. 12) Odilorhabdin antibiotics or ODLs, from nematode-associated bacteria. 13) MptpB inhibitors. 14) Peptidomimetics: The New Resistant-Proof(?) Antibiotics 15) If you know of or find an alternative new technology or new antibiotic or new drug you would prefer to write about instead, please discuss it with your professor and get approval to proceed. You might browse google scholar (https://scholar.google.com) or the United States Patent Office website https://www.uspto.gov or go to a science review website like https://sciencedaily.com for ideas and information for a starting point for your presentation.
