Genome mining has potential uses in synthetic biology and drug discovery
Researchers discovered a cluster of genes in Pseudomonas syringae which infects plants. The results of this research were published in Science on July 19th. However, this natural product produced belongs to a special class of ribosomally synthesized and posttranslationally modified peptides.  Discuss
The European Commission pursues open science and why it’s important
Scientists believe that there is a reproducibility crisis in the scientific community where many scientists fail to reproduce experiments, according to a new report by Science | Business in July 2019. Open science is a high priority for the European Commission, with around 70% of all data generated by EU-funded programs being accessible to the public.  Discuss
Microbiome-directed therapeutic foods tackle childhood malnutrition
The results of two new reports, linking the growth of infants and children to healthy development of gut microbiomes, were published in Science on July 12th. Researchers utilized microbiome-directed complementary foods in an approach that focuses on selectively boosting key growth-promoting gut microbes using ingredients present in affordable, culturally acceptable foods.  Discuss
CAR-T cell therapy research shows encouraging signs for mesothelioma patients
Every year, nearly 3,000 new cases of mesothelioma are diagnosed in the United States. While this is just a small percentage of overall cancer diagnoses, this rare cancer is one that has proven to be extremely difficult to treat. Fortunately, even with this cancer affecting a disproportionate number of patients, researchers are continuing to study mesothelioma in hopes of improving the disease’s prognosis.  Discuss
New clinical trial testing effectiveness of anti-obesity drug in conjunction with genetic screening
A new phase 3 clinical trial expected to begin in late July 2019, will test an anti-obesity drug targeting people with rare genetic conditions, and will be tied to a genetic study attempting to create a more comprehensive understanding of the genes associated with obesity.  Discuss
Landmark study explores public understanding of science and trust in scientific and medical professionals
Understanding global perceptions and knowledge of science is of growing interest to the scientific community. Organizations such as 3M, with their State of Science Index Survey and the Wellcome Global Monitor (WGM), from the Wellcome Foundation and Gallup World Poll, explore attitudes towards science and medicine, and also confidence in scientists themselves.  Discuss
