Enzyme structure found in Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb), the bacterium that causes tuberculosis (TB) by scientists at the University of Warwick may help develop new therapies to eradicate tuberculosis.
Evolutionary history of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)-associated colorectal cancer has been identified by a research team. This may help design diagnostic tests to find patients with IBD at high risk of developing cancer.
New computational tool combines multiple types of genomic information to make stronger predictions about what genomic features are associated with specific drug responses; the tool is designed by University of Illinois and the Mayo Clinic.
Exercise can make your heart and gut healthier. Cardiovascular fitness had higher firmicutes to bacteroides ratio. Firmicutes are associated with metabolic byproducts that help prevent bacteria in the gut from leaking into the body.
