"If you listen to people, you discover very quickly that they want to tell you their story. And part of it often is that people might not listen very well necessarily, and no one has come by to listen to them. You discover when you go out on the road to talk to people that they have amazing stories to tell." - Steve Inskeep (at Npr National Public Radio Headquarters)

Vaginal microbe yields novel antibiotic (Nature News)

Bacteria living on human bodies contain genes that are likely to code for a vast number of drug-like molecules — including a new antibiotic made by bacteria that live in the vagina, researchers report in this week’s issue of Cell1.

The drug, lactocillin, hints at the untapped medical potential of this microbial landscape.

“They have shown that there is a huge diverse potential of the microbiome for producing antimicrobial molecules,” says Marc Ouellette, a microbiologist at the University of Laval’s Hospital Centre (CHUL) in Quebec, Canada, who was not involved in the research.
