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.
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.
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.
