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

New machine learning tool detects mutational signature linking bladder cancer to tobacco smoking

Researchers at the University of California San Diego have for the first time discovered a pattern of DNA mutations that link bladder cancer to tobacco smoking. The discovery is made possible by a powerful new machine learning tool the team has developed to find patterns of mutations caused by carcinogens and other DNA alterations. The … Read more
