Open access dataset reveals how factors such as diet, antibiotics and mental health status can influence the microbial and molecular makeup of your gut.
While some people are warning about artificial intelligence leading to killer robots, researchers are showing the positive impact of A.I. in its potential to overcome disease.
Researchers at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard have reported that their platform, SHERLOCK, now can be used to detect viruses directly in clinical samples such as blood or saliva.
E. coli bacteria are the frequent culprits behind outbreaks of food-borne illnesses. But not all strains are harmful; some are even helpful.
As a post-antibiotic future beckons, how can humanity protect itself against the proliferation of superbugs? Research suggests ‘drug sanctuaries’ in hospitals could be a promising solution.
A new study by Cancer Research UK has found that more than 135,500 cases of cancer every year in the UK could be prevented through lifestyle changes.
