Graham Hatfull speaks about heading up the SEA-PHAGES project and the role this has played in understanding phage diversity and evolution, in addition to commenting on a recent case where a phage cocktail was used to treat a case of Mycobacterium abscessus.
Researchers discover Clostridium difficile is evolving due to genetic changes that allow it to thrive on the Western diet and evade disinfectants making it highly adapted to spread in hospitals.
New research suggests that higher global temperatures could have prompted an adaptation in Candida auris, allowing it to infect warm-blooded mammals.
Multidrug resistance to two antimalarials, used in combination as a first-line therapy, has been found using genomic surveillance to be rapidly spreading throughout Asia.
A new study using CRISPR-Cas9 and long-acting slow-effective release antiretroviral therapy has reported the elimination of replication-competent HIV-1 DNA from the genomes of living animals for the first time.
Scientists at California State University, Fresno have identified multidrug resistance in six probiotic Bacillus strains to several antibiotics through genetic analysis.
A study has revealed genetic variants associated with differing levels of protective antibodies produced after routine immunizations.
A global genomic survey of Streptococcus pneumoniae has identified 621 strains across 50 countries and has highlighted how the bacteria can evolve in response to vaccination.
