Bacterial adhesion in vitro and in silico

Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) researchers in Munich, Germany, have characterized the physical mechanism that enables a widespread bacterial pathogen to adhere to the tissues of its human host.

Virus found to adapt through newly discovered path of evolution

Bucking a central tenet of biology, researchers at the University of California San Diego and their colleagues have discovered evidence for a new path of evolution, and with it a deeper understanding of how quickly organisms ...

Study may help explain why iron can worsen malaria infection

Researchers at the National Institutes of Health have a possible explanation for why iron can sometimes worsen malaria infection. By studying mice and samples from malaria patients, the researchers found that extra iron interferes ...

Scientists mix the unmixable to create 'shocking' nanoparticles

Making a giant leap in the 'tiny' field of nanoscience, a multi-institutional team of researchers is the first to create nanoscale particles composed of up to eight distinct elements generally known to be immiscible, or incapable ...

Mice 'eavesdrop' on rats' tear signal

Tears might not seem to have an odor. But studies have shown that proteins in tears do act as pheromonal cues. For example, the tear glands of male mice produce a protein that makes females more receptive to sex. Now researchers ...
