Microbiome engineering has large potential for sustainable agriculture. Here we demonstrate that field inoculation with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi can promote crop yield and inoculations success can be predicted using soil microbiome indicators.
In this study, malaria parasite genetic surveillance was undertaken using targeted nanopore sequencing on portable MinION devices in Ghana. The end-to-end process, from sampling to sequencing to data analysis, was performed using laptop computers at two sites in Ghana, one urban and one rural.
Trehalose polyphleates- very large, surface-exposed molecules- are required for infection of several phages used as therapy against opportunistic pathogen Mycobacterium abscessus.
Behind-the-scenes, nostalgic rambling on the synthesis and completion of "LY6E is a pan-coronavirus restriction factor in the respiratory tract."
