These Bacteria Are Wired to Hunt Like a Tiny Wolf Pack
There is an elaborate stealth communication network in the Earth beneath your feet. This smart web acts like a superorganism, fortifying defensive capabilities and coordinating deadly attacks on unsuspecting targets. But it’s not run by the NSA, the CIA, or the military. This web is made of bacteria.
A team of scientists led by Manfred Auer at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have used cutting-edge 3-D microscopy to identify a new mechanism for bacterial networking. They observed elaborate webs of a common soil bacterium, Myxococcus xanthus, connected by thread-like membranes. This system of cellular pipelines suggests that some bacteria have evolved complex ways to deliver molecular cargo out of sight from snooping neighbors. Their work appears in the journal Environmental Microbiology.

Dude. This means that your name and address could have been in Dumbledore’s office. 

How do you think he knew where to send the Hogwarts acceptance letter? Magic?

BINGO

Human immunodeficiency virus
The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV, in yellow) causes acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). In patients with AIDS, specific immune cells (such as T cells, in blue) die as the virus hijacks normal cellular machinery in order to replicate in vast numbers. Without proper immune function, patients become susceptible to otherwise innocuous infections that the body can no longer fight off. Recent research has turned to powerful computer systems to decrease the time it takes to find new HIV drugs from several years to just weeks, tremendously accelerating the drug discovery process.
