This report reviews the use of recombinase polymerase amplification for virus detection, showing that the method has favorable fundamental properties supporting its promise for rapid point-of-care detection of enteric viruses.
In this interview, we speak to Tracey Goldstein, Co-Principal Investigator and Pathogen Diagnostics Co-Lead for the viral emergence early-warning project PREDICT, who gives us an overview of the project, what brought it about and some of the findings thus far.
New research displays how intestinal microbiota could regulate body composition; providing an insight into the molecular link between gut microbiota and the circadian clock via transcription factor NFIL3.
In this editorial, the authors discusss the host-associated microbiome as the ultimate environmental trigger for epigenetic processes, highlighting the need for more research and interdisciplinary studies.
In this interview, we speak to Cornelia Lass-Flörl from the Innsbruck Medical University (Austria) who has a special interest in the epidemiology, diagnosis, prevention and therapy of fungal infections.
This study characterizes 23 nonserotypeable Shigella using whole genome sequencing, discovering this approach for Shigella O-antigen analysis has greater discriminative power than other methods using different bioinformatics pipeline for identification of nonserotypeable Shigella.
DNA sequencing of MRSA could help identify patients who are most at risk of death from the infection – providing a new treatment strategy towards personalized medicine.
A novel tool has been developed that could help researchers distinguish between bacterial and non-bacterial infection in patients hospitalized with lower respiratory tract infection.
