Researchers reveal the secret code language of bacteria

Antibiotic resistance in pathogenic bacteria is a growing global challenge. Danish researchers have now discovered that bacteria use a code language to avoid being controlled. Understanding this code language will be paramount to developing new antibiotics in the future.

Slow worms react quickly to climate change

Evolution can go quickly when it has to – at least for small organisms. Researchers exposed a natural setting in Denmark to artificial climate change and discovered that soil just half a degree warmer caused the genome of small worms to change surprisingly quickly.

Model can be trained to guess your height

Postdoc Bjarni Vilhjálmsson and Aarhus University researchers have developed a probability model that can be trained to calculate the impact of genetic variants on our appearance and diseases. Providing accurate indications of our genomes is still a long way off.
