Email digest of REBLAB

Hi! I am a Dutch microbiologist and author and in I would like to regularly update you on my research. I study metabolism of vaginal bacteria and the role they play on healthy pregnancies and healthy sex lives. My goal is to make my science as collaborative and transparant as possible, and this newsletter is trying to achieve that.

Findings from the internship of Deborah Jekel
Very sad Deborah’s internship has ended. She did a good job, and I wish her all the best in the future. In this blog post she shares her findings.
She showed something really basic but important: the Lactobacillus crispatus (vaginal) isolate we have used really produces lactic acid when grown on medium with glycogen. And: the starch-breakdown activity is repressed when grown on glucose, but not after growth on galactose, indicating carbon catabolite repression.

Introducing new MSc student Ritesh Panchoe
Luckily, Ritesh has joined our project. He has a lot of nice lab skills and experience from his previous degrees. Already I am learning from him! He will be growing Gardnerella vaginalis and Lactobacillus iners in the anaerobic chamber, in addition to Lactobacillus crispatus. Please find his introduction here:

We’ll draft a new newsletter at the end of his internship (or when we have news). Don’t forget to forward this to anybody you think may be interested. Have a nice summer!
