Multi-drug resistance is associated with a three-fold increase in the risk of hospital mortality in sepsis due to Gram-negative bacteremia
A tool for genome-wide visualization and analysis of mutations in Candida albicans, allowing interrogation of copy number variation,SNPs and loss of heterozygosity.
A read-mapping based tool for fast and accurate detection of genes, alleles and multi-locus sequence types from whole genome sequences for common bacterial pathogens.
Tsompana and Buck provide an up-to-date analysis of chromatin accessibility assays, giving a perspective on future improvements necessary for moving the field of chromatin profiling forward.
Whole genome sequencing of multi-drug resistant Acinetobacter baumannii in a prolonged hospital outbreak in Birmingham, UK, advises on control and prevention strategies.
Osteoblasts from osteoarthritis patients show enhanced susceptibility to Ross River virus infection, indicating osteoarthritis as a risk factor for alphavirus-induced bone pathology.
Monogamous female Drosophila suffer decreased fertility compared to multiply mated females, apparently due to differing transcriptional changes in response to mating; monogamous females have a more virgin-like expression profile than promiscuous females.
A previously undescribed genotype of avian bornavirus was isolated from wild ducks in central Oklahoma, enhancing our knowledge on the genetic diversity and epidemiology of this virus.
Methylation array data can identify individuals and convey protected health information, yet federal policy dictates that data from these arrays are deposited in publicly available databases.
In a randomized clinical trial, sudden deafness refractory to systemic corticosteroid therapy is responsive to topical application of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), providing an alternative for patients resistant to systemic glucocorticoids.
