drug resistance

With long-read sequencing, mapping, and other approaches, researchers assembled a high-quality genome for Aedes aegypti, a notorious infectious disease vector.

In PNAS this week: artemisinin resistance mutations in malaria parasites, ant-plant interactions over time, and more.

A team saw resilience and recolonization roles for antibiotic resistance gene-carrying microbes in the gut microbiomes of men treated with broad-spectrum antibiotics.

Members of the Beat AML consortium uncovered relationships between somatic mutations, gene expression profiles, and sensitivity to more than 100 drugs.

The PCR assay is intended to help detect TB-causing bacteria and determine if it harbors mutations associated with isoniazid and rifampicin resistance.

The amplicon sequencing method, called resistance mutation sequencing (RM-seq), may help in detecting resistance earlier than traditional techniques.

Metagenomic Analysis Reveals Shifting Skin Microbe Communities

Researchers saw subway line-specific microbes on the hands of subway riders, with increased skin microbial community convergence in samples from evening commuters.

The firm is developing products based in part on DNA-enrichment and bioinformatics technologies developed at Stanford and Harvard, respectively.

Using a protocol developed at the University of Oxford, the researchers hope that nanopore sequencing can aid diagnosis and drug resistance profiling in remote areas.

Researchers described diet-related patterns of gut microbial diversity, microbiome ties to psychiatric disease, and more.
