Schistosoma mansoni parasite. In 2009 researchers from the UT Health Science Center San Antonio and other institutions crack the genetic code of Schistosoma mansoni, a flatworm that can live up to 10 years on average in humans. The parasite is endemic in many tropical areas of the world. #getuv #viqua

Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the parasitic powdery mildew Erysiphe sp. on the stalk of a plant. The orange needle-like structures are thorns on the surface of the stalk. Hyphae (grey) are the tangled filaments that form the fungal colony. Rising up from the hyphae are asexual spore-bearing structures called conidiophores. Powdery mildew is so-called because of the numerous white spores it produces. It is an agricultural pest, which parasitizes leaves of grasses.

SEM of Staphylococcus epidermidis cluster embedded in exopolysaccharide matrix. The Gram-positive bacteria S. epidermidis and S. aureus are the most common pathogens in hospital-acquired infections. The more recent combination of extraordinary virulence and multiple antibiotic resistance in community-acquired methicillin-resistant strains of S. aureus (CA-MRSA) poses an additional severe threat to public health.
