phylogenomic analysis Sequencing Analysis Traces Origins of Malaria-Causing Parasite to Southeast Asia Plasmodium vivax likely spread from Southeast Asia through a series of founder events, in contrast to a proposed out-of-Africa scenario. Medieval Plague Genomes Help Retrace Pandemic's Routes Using newly sequenced and existing plague genomes, researchers saw signs that the Second Plague Pandemic may have involved multiple introductions to Europe. Zika Virus Genomes Elucidate Disease Spread in Central America, Mexico Researchers sequenced 61 Zika virus genomes isolated from patients in the region to reconstruct viral movements. Citrus Genomics, Phylogenetics Traces Fruits' Origins Researchers also used citrus genomes to untangle their relationships and suggest new taxonomic classifications. Phylogenomic Study Shows Utility of Ancient DNA Samples for Modern Research Two researchers devised a protocol to sequence DNA from ancient samples and tested it on 100-year-old museum specimens.

Small Study of Gene Editing to Treat Sickle Cell Disease In a Novartis-sponsored study in the New England Journal of Medicine, researchers found that a CRISPR-Cas9-based treatment targeting promoters of genes encoding fetal hemoglobin could reduce disease symptoms. Gut Microbiome Changes Appear in Infants Before They Develop Eczema, Study Finds Researchers report in mSystems that infants experienced an enrichment in Clostridium sensu stricto 1 and Finegoldia and a depletion of Bacteroides before developing eczema. Acute Myeloid Leukemia Treatment Specificity Enhanced With Stem Cell Editing A study in Nature suggests epitope editing in donor stem cells prior to bone marrow transplants can stave off toxicity when targeting acute myeloid leukemia with immunotherapy.
