Viral geometry mystery solved, or at least they have a theory
September 27, 2019 -- A new theory, published in Nature Communications on September 27, accurately predicts the positions of proteins within icosahedral (twenty-sided) protein containers of viruses. Researchers at the University of York in the UK and San Diego State University in the US state that this discovery revolutionizes scientific understanding of how viruses form, evolve and infect hosts.
Form-switching bacteria may cause antibiotic resistance
September 26, 2019 -- For the first time, scientists have confirmed that bacteria can change forms to avoid being targeted by antibiotics in the human body. Researchers from Newcastle University used state-of-the-art technology to identify bacteria with this unique characteristic. They show, in a study published in Nature Communications on September 26, that these bacteria can survive without a cell wall, potentially leading to antibiotic resistance.  Discuss
Super-resolution imaging characterizes individual synaptic proteins
September 26, 2019 -- It is now possible to rapidly image synaptic proteins at high-resolution thanks to a new technique developed by researchers at MIT and the Broad Institute of Harvard. Details of the technique which use fluorescent nucleic acid probes to label different proteins are described the September 26 Nature Communications article.  Discuss
New synthetic vaccine fights infectious disease with assistance from the data cloud
September 25, 2019 -- A new synthetic vaccine developed by researchers at the University of Bristol and the French National Centre for Scientific Research can be stored at warmer temperatures due to an engineered scaffold design. The details of the Chikungunya vaccine candidate are published in Science Advances on September 25.  Discuss
New research helps scientists understand the genetic cause of immune disease
September 24, 2019 -- Research published in Nature Genetics on September 23 helps narrow down the search for molecular drivers for immune disease which could result in the identification of new drug targets and development of new therapies illnesses such as asthma, multiple sclerosis, and arthritis.  Discuss
Exploring new tools with class 1 CRISPR systems
September 23, 2019 -- A biomedical engineering collaboration between researchers at Duke University and North Carolina State University explores new frontiers of CRISPR technology utilizing the less well-known class 1 CRISPR system. The study was published in Nature Biotechnology on September 23.  Discuss
