  • Treating sexually transmitted infections

    This Editorial sets the scene for the series in which we encounter the difficulties of treating antibiotic-resistant gonorrhoea and Mycoplasma genitalium; the continuing spread of chlamydia, syphilis and trichomoniasis, as well as management of non-gonococcal urethritis and bacterial vaginosis.

    NBC useful for defining cause of death

    The classic naive Bayes classifier (NBC) outperforms other automated classifiers for verbal autopsy when defining cause of death (COD), but further research is needed as no automated classifier adequately replicates physician classification of COD.

  • Down syndrome methylation

    Novel biological mechanisms are implicated in the development of Down syndrome by studying methylation patterns in humans and mice

    Genome Biology 2015, 16:263
  • S. aureus alternative Cas9

    A characterization of an alternative, Staphylococcus aureus-derived Cas9 nuclease and the design of all-in-one vector

  • The perivascular origin of mesenchymal stem cells

    Iain Murray and Bruno Peault explain in question and answer form why we should care about where mesenchymal stem cells come from. They have been successfully isolated from cell cultures for decades and administered in hundreds of clinical trials, but a better understanding of their role in vivo holds promise for their more effective use in regenerative medicine.

    An elusive history

    The largest morphological dataset ever assembled of Ditrysia, which comprise 99% of butterflies and moths, contributes new information on the diversity and distribution of this super-group and provides a platform to resolve the many mysteries surrounding their evolution.

    Novel Th cell lineage-specific genes and lncRNAs

    Transcriptional analysis of naïve and polarized T cells integrating three different approaches reveals a high-confidence list of Th1 and Th2 lineage-specific protein-coding genes and long non-coding RNAs.

    Towards a cure for HIV

    Eradicating latent viruses remains a major challenge for curing HIV infection; Hui Zhang and colleagues review current understanding of the mechanisms of viral latency, and discuss recent advances in the development of a functional cure for HIV.

    European Review of Aging and Physical Activity (EURAPA) has launched

    This journal transferred to BioMed Central from Springer, having published as a subscription title since 2006. The relaunch was led by joint Editors-in-Chief Yael Netz (Israel), and Wiebren Zijlstra (Germany), and is published on behalf of the European Group for Research into Elderly and Physical Activity. EURAPA covers research on issues related to physical activity and aging across both biomedical and behavioral sciences. Visit the journal website to find out more.

    Reproducibility: what are we going to do about it?

    As an increasing number of studies reveal that much of science is not able to be reproduced or replicated, BioMed Central launched the pilot of a new Minimum Standards of Reporting Checklist.

    The checklist addresses three areas of reporting: experimental design and statistics, resources, and availability of data and materials.

    As well as posting a blog to summarize the main features, a launch editorial was published, where BioMed Central staff and the Editors of GigaScience and Genome Biology stressed the need for ensuring the reproducibility of scientific work.
