Researchers identify a bacteria on healthy cats that produces antibiotics against severe skin infections; the findings may lead to new bacteriotherapies for humans and their pets
The Meaningful Marriage of Metabolism and Microbiome: How Metabolites and Bile Acids Might Influence the Detection and Treatment of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the leading cause of female infertility, affecting approximately 10% of reproductive-aged women. Moreover, women with the disorder often suffer from metabolic issues that can lead to type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Unfortunately, since PCOS is a complex genetic trait disorder, the cause is unknown, and…

UC San Diego School of Medicine awarded $6.1M to study effects of maternal antibiotic use on infant health in new collaborative research center funded by National Institutes of Health
Pondering Problems in Probing Profilers: Exploring the Challenges in Comparing Metagenomic Profilers
As with most nascent research fields, microbial metagenomics has grappled not just with the question of how to measure and contextualize data but how to develop and refine tools to perform those analyses. While many tools have been created and used effectively, benchmarking their performance has proven especially difficult. One of the critical issues in…
Nanoengineers at the University of California San Diego have developed COVID-19 vaccine candidates that can take the heat. Their key ingredients? Viruses from plants or bacteria.
Lab studies reveal protein HSP27’s role in blood vessel leakage, opening the possibility that therapeutically dialing its activity up or down might stabilize patients with sepsis
Since the early days of the pandemic, wastewater has played a vital role in the fight against SARS-CoV-2. While the virus primarily attacks the respiratory system, it replicates in the gastrointestinal tract, travels into stool, and eventually reaches sewage systems. This knowledge allowed researchers to devise a wastewater surveillance system that detects presymptomatic and asymptomatic…
Conventional wisdom on viral disease transmission needs updating, international science team concludes
