Take a look behind the scenes of a recent Future Microbiology review, entitled ‘Role of two-component regulatory systems in bacterial antibiotic resistance’, as we ask the authors about the mechanisms of two-component regulatory systems and what potential these could hold for drug development.

New research suggests that higher global temperatures could have prompted an adaptation in Candida auris, allowing it to infect warm-blooded mammals.
In this interview we speak to Leah Blondeau about her research into the pathogens that can be passed from companion animals to humans, recently presented in a poster at the European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infection Disease.
Despite long-term antiretroviral therapy, cerebrospinal HIV reservoirs have been identified in individuals living with the virus and linked with a higher rate of cognitive defects.
In this interview we speak to Daniella Lefteri about her research on modulating arbovirus infection by targeting mosquito saliva, and what avenues this could present for new antiviral treatments.
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.
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.
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.
