  • Cooling Towers & Legionnaires Disease

    The largest outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease in New York City history was traced to a cooling tower at a Bronx hotel in 2015. Over 120 people were infected and 12 of them died causing health officials to establish regulations for ongoing Legionella control measures. In March of 2016 in Sydney, Australia, 12 cooling towers tested positive for Legionella levels above the regulatory ...

  • Team probes mysteries of oceanic bacteria

    Microbes living in the oceans play a critical role in regulating Earth's environment, but very little is known about their activities and how they work together to help control natural cycles of water, carbon and energy. A team of MIT researchers led by Professors Edward DeLong and Penny Chisholm is trying to change that. Borrowing gene sequencing tools developed for sequencing the human ...

  • Aquatic Bacteria: Possible markers for monitoring arctic climate change

    The study, published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Early Edition, shows that bacterial communities in the six rivers shifted synchronously over time, correlating with seasonal shifts in hydrology and biogeochemistry. The research team documents these patterns through a three-year, circumpolar study of planktonic bacterial communities in the six largest rivers of ...

  • Could Legionella Bacteria Be Contaminating Your Hot Tub?

    Hot tubs that are operated and maintained improperly provide a perfect breeding ground for Legionella bacteria. Exposure to Legionella can cause potentially deadly Legionnaires’ disease and non-fatal Pontiac fever. Legionnaires’ disease is a severe, potentially fatal and debilitating form of pneumonia that has long term effects after the disease has been treated. Pontiac fever is a ...
