Processing of the samples in molecular diagnostics is complex and labor-intensive. Here, the authors present a prototype of a versatile and integrated platform for the detection of pathogens in various liquid media.
International collaborative research has analyzed Ebola virus genomes from the 2013–2016 outbreak, uncovering the role of factors such as language and distance between cities.
In new research, the first live-attenuated Zika vaccine has been demonstrated to protected mice against the virus after a single dose.
Researchers have applied concepts from financial mathematical models to help predict the evolution of HIV proteins with the hope this could improve vaccine design.
Researchers have demonstrated that outbreaks of dengue virus have a local structure, and hope their findings on transmission patterns could lead to better targeted interventions.
Researchers looking at the genome of M. tuberculosis have discovered that HIV co-infection could be influencing how the bacteria are evolving.
Researchers have demonstrated that Trypanosoma brucei, the parasite responsible for sleeping sickness, has its own molecular clock, which could affect the parasite’s sensitivity to treatments.
