Scientists have developed what they call living concrete by using sand, gel and bacteria.
A self-cleaning surface that can repel all forms of bacteria and prevent the transfer of superbugs has been developed, scientists said.
The E.coli bacteria is more likely to be spread through poor toilet hygiene than undercooked meat or other food, according to new research.
Taking a fingerprint of gut bacteria could help treat or even prevent the side effects of radiotherapy for prostate and gynaecological cancers, scientists say.
Alcohol-producing microbes that live in the gut may cause liver damage – even in people who do not drink, research suggests.
The prescribing of antibiotics could be drastically reduced by a device that detects bacteria in human breath, scientists have said.
The armour that superbugs deploy to resist antiseptics could be used to create a new generation of plastics, a study suggests.
The processes that help wounds heal after injuries may be able to help in the fight against superbugs.
Public areas including baby changing rooms, pedestrian crossings and hospital receptions are “reservoirs” for antibiotic-resistant bacteria, scientists say.
Bacteria evolve to attack immune systems without multiplying faster, research suggests.
Antibiotic-resistant strains of a potentially deadly gut bacteria are spreading through European hospitals, a study suggests.

A battery made from paper and powered by bacteria and spit could be a cheap, eco-friendly alternative to currently available commercial counterparts, according to scientists.
Germs are present everywhere.
Targeting the “suit of armour” that surrounds many types of bacteria could usher in a new generation of antibiotics, say scientists.
