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

Stanford University researchers have devised a new technique to control protein production

Thanks to new RNA vaccines, we humans have been able to protect ourselves incredibly quickly from new viruses like SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. These vaccines insert a piece of ephemeral genetic material into the body’s cells, which then read its code and produce a specific protein — in this case, telltale “spikes” that … 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
