Researchers have discovered that host susceptibility to Plasmodium infection and disease could be modulated by dietary alterations – particularly with a high-fat diet.
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 exclusive opinion piece, the authors discuss how ‘OMICS’ can help to unravel molecular dynamics driving the complex biological process involved in disease transmission.
Researchers have uncovered metabolic changes in Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which may enable the bacteria to withstand exposure to antimicrobials, suggesting that targeting these pathways could reduce treatment times.
This editorial discusses the role of metabolomics in identifying TB biomarkers, which have shed light on previously unknown disease mechanisms and could contribute to improved TB diagnostics.
