New research investigating possible interactions between Epstein–Barr virus and neurological diseases has successfully infected neuronal-like cells in vitro, with the hope to use these as a model for studying this virus in the future.
Scientists at California State University, Fresno have identified multidrug resistance in six probiotic Bacillus strains to several antibiotics through genetic analysis.
New study determines a neutralizing antibody which binds to the most pandemic strain of norovirus in humans that could be utilized for an effective vaccine.
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.
Researchers from the Japanese National Institute of Infectious Disease have identified the American subtype of Zika as the most virulent for each of the contributing characteristics tested, when compared with Pacific and Southeast Asian subtypes.
In this interview we speak with Sarah Earle from the University of Oxford (UK) about her use of GWAS to understand more about Neisseria meningitidis and its transition from an asymptomatic commensal to an invasive pathogen.
