It has been widely reported that bacteria will evolve to render antibiotics mostly ineffective by mid-century—and current strategies to make up for the projected shortfalls haven’t worked.
23andMe have announced a large-scale study designed to uncover the genetic reasons why people respond differently to diet and exercise regimes.
The spread of some STI’s could potentially be dramatically reduced by instructing people to take antibiotics within 24 hours after unprotected sex.
Understanding the precise mix of bacteria and their interactions could become a standard part of clinical practice in treating bacterial infections.
A recent study sheds new light on maternal asthma, suggesting that during pregnancy it may be caused due to changes in an infant’s gut microbes.
When superbug infections spread across hospitals, scientists are often left puzzled at how the pathogens spread. A new paper suggests its down to genetics.
