Researchers are exploring how bacteriophage resistance helps drive the emergence of dominant strains of Salmonella

Researchers from the Quadram Institute and the University of East Anglia have explored how resistance helped drive the emergence of dominant strains of salmonella. In addition to antimicrobial resistance, resistance to phages may give these insects a boost, at least in the short term. With antimicrobial resistance on the rise, the search for new ways … Read more

The blood test uses artificial intelligence and biomarkers to prenatally detect congenital heart defects in the fetus

Researchers at Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak, have discovered a blood test for pregnant women that uses artificial intelligence and genetic-related biomarkers to accurately detect congenital heart defects in a fetus, long before birth. Ray Bahadu Singh, chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Beaumont Health, and lead author of “Accurate Prenatal Detection of Fetal Congenital Heart Defects,” … Read more

Bioinformatic analysis of monkeypox virus host cell interactions

Although monkeypox virus infection is found predominantly in West and Central Africa, since May 2022 this double-stranded DNA virus has been reported in several countries outside Africa. Similar to the smallpox virus, monkeypox virus also belongs to the orthopoxvirus family and is less severe. The World Health Organization recently declared the global outbreak of monkeypox … Read more

Research reveals how a cancer-causing gene influences genetic variation in prostate cancer

Researchers from the Barts Cancer Institute (BCI) at Queen Mary University of London, the Italian Institute for Genomic Medicine, and the University of Milan have identified a new role for a cancer-causing gene in controlling an important genetic process that underpins genetic variation in the prostate. cancer. Results published today in cell reportsreveals how the … Read more

Genomic testing could be more useful for patients with chronic kidney disease

Genetic testing can benefit patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) as more causative genes are identified and evidence of clinical benefit is discovered. Genome testing for treatment Chronic kidney failure (CKD) has seen advances in areas where genomics can guide therapy. A review was posted on Current Opinion in Kidney Disease and Hypertension It was … Read more
