Leptospirosis strains identified in Uruguay cattle

Leptospirosis infections, caused by Leptospira bacteria, occur in people and animals around the world, but different strains of the bacteria may vary in their ability to cause disease and to jump between species. Now, researchers have for the first time described the characteristics of the Leptospira variants that infect cattle in Uruguay. Source: Leptospirosis strains […]

Largest study of 'post-treatment controllers' reveals clues about HIV remission

Much remains unknown about a group of individuals known as HIV post-treatment controllers, including how rare this ability is. Two new studies explore the characteristics of this group as well as the biological mechanisms that may help explain this unique ability.

Predicting genomic instability that can lead to disease

They are the most common repeated elements in the human genome; more than a million copies are scattered among and between our genes. Called Alu elements, these relatively short, non-coding sequences of DNA cause genomic structural variation. Now scientists have developed a novel computational tool that predicts genomic instability that can lead to disease. Source: […]
