A bacterial genome reveals new targets to combat infectious disease

...he nematodes themselves play host to bacteria that live within their cells, but in this case, the relationship is classic mutualism, with each benefiting from the other. Indeed, the Wolbachia bacterium is so crucial to its host nematode that apparently eradicating it with antibiotics severely compromises ...

Spider Venom Could Yield Eco-Friendly Insecticides
