Researchers of LU and BMC have identified the 3D structure and self-collection principles of bacterial myconosis

 

 

For the first time in the world, Latvian researchers have detected the components of a bacterial cell – a microdivision, also called microcompartmentes, a 3D structural structure. With the support of the “Mikrotīkls” fund of the University of Latvia (LU), the researchers of the LU and Latvian Biomedical Research and Studies Centre (BMC) have identified the principles by which these microparts are organised and visualised their 3D structure. The discovery has been published in the high-level scientific journal Nature Communications.
