NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The Plasmodium vivax parasite species behind most human malaria cases in Asia and Latin America can be traced back to Africa, where some ape species are still frequently afflicted with the parasite, according to a Nature Communications

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The European Union has approved a project aimed at determining the causes of extreme aggressive behavior and is providing €6 million ($8 million) to the effort.

The study offers scientists a streamlined method for investigating the effects of miRNAs on protein expression and is "quite typical" of the kind of work the ISB and ETH Zurich's SRMAtlas will help facilitate, said Ruedi Aebersold, co-developer of the SRMAtlas.
