Bacteria living in biofilms generate electrical signals that attract motile bacteria for incorporation into the biofilm
Researchers have discovered that a subset of bacteriophages, dubbed “superspreaders,” potentially play a major role in transmitting antimicrobial resistance.
New tests for detecting prions in the blood and evidence showing that foamy retroviruses originated in the seas with their jawed vertebrate hosts at least 450 million years ago.
