Bruce Budowle discusses a new approach to differentiate identical twins in paternity testing and forensics.
Patients with a do-not-resuscitate (DNR)-Comfort-Care order receive fewer aggressive treatment interventions after initiating the DNR order, suggesting that clear indication of medical care requirements for DNR patients ensures appropriate treatment.
We announce the winners of the 2014 BMC Ecology image competition.
Parasitic Ophiocordyceps fungi, who turn their ant hosts into ‘zombies’, can infect and kill multiple ant species but only manipulate behaviour in their specific host species; this could be related to the metabolites they secrete.
An analysis of the deep targeted sequencing and WGS of matched primary and metastatic colorectal cancer shows high mutations concordance
Metformin, a diabetes drug, altered mitochondrial activity by acting on Complex I, with a particularly strong effect on cancer cells, supporting its use as a cancer therapeutic.
IntClust is a genome-driven breast cancer classifier which subtypes these cancers based on gene expression alone
Homology exists between measles antigens and intestinal proteins, but antibody reactivity is not significantly greater in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients than healthy controls, providing further evidence against a link between measles and IBD.
Obi Griffith, Andrew Su and colleagues discuss the challenges of combining the genomic knowledge and N-of-1 studies to improve personalized medicine
David Adams and colleagues discuss the elegant approach for the cancer evolution studies, combining sequencing with the clever choice of cancer models
