An international research team has been examining transmission of a virus from monkeys to humans in Bangladesh, one of the world's most densely populated countries.
Cancer cells are resourceful survivors with plenty of tricks for staying alive.
A new study suggests that the reason worker bees are such a highly skilled and specialized workforce is that the genes controlling their behavior are re-shuffled frequently, helping evolution build a better bee.
Research from the University of Melbourne has shown that two different vaccine viruses- used simultaneously to control the same condition in chickens- have combined to produce new infectious viruses, prompting early response from Australia's veterinary medicines regulator.
The study, published yesterday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), looked at how genes on sex-linked chromosomes are passed down generations and linked to fertility, using the specific example of the W chromosome in female chickens.
Scientists of KIT and the University of Birmingham have identified relevant new functions of a gene that plays a crucial role in Fanconi anemia, a life-threatening disease.
A study published in BioMed Central's Biology Direct journal reports the existence of a previously undetected group of viruses and, more importantly, a new type of viral genome that could have huge implications for theories of viral emergence and evolution.
Bacteria are the most populous organisms on the planet.
A recent study posted in Nature Genetics explains that researchers have found that Chlamydia has been evolving differently than previously thought. The researchers used whole genome sequencing to find these results.
In a study released today in Nature Genetics, researchers have found that Chlamydia has evolved more actively than was previously thought.
