The composition of the microbiome can be adjusted by pairing bacterial species with their favorite foods, a new Stanford Medicine study suggests.

Stanford researchers have discovered a genetic "tuning knob" that can enlarge or shrink bacteria across a wide range - and this can be used to fatten up the bacteria to increase their susceptibility to certain antibiotics.

A technique for growing sticky films of bacteria into elaborate microscopic images could reveal how potentially dangerous biofilms grow and transmit antibiotic resistance, and could lead to novel biomaterials or synthetic microbial communities.
