Raw Cat Food Could Spread Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria

News

Scientists have found that raw cat food was associated with contamination of cats' feces with Enterobacteria that contained the enzyme beta-lactamase. This particular enzyme is important because it can break down a chemical structure called the lactam ring. This is important because it forms a part of numerous antibiotics - no lactam ring, no antibiotic activity.

Physicists Develop Faster Way to Make Bose-Einstein Condensates

News

Physicists have invented a new technique to cool atoms into condensates, which is faster than the conventional method and conserves a large fraction of the original atoms. The team used a new process of laser cooling to cool a cloud of rubidium atoms all the way from room temperature to 1 microkelvin, or less than one-millionth of a degree above absolute zero.
