A new plant-bacterial symbiotic mechanism promising for crop applications

...searchers sequenced (3) the genes of two bacterial strains of Bradyrhizobium, ORS278 and BTAi1, in order to find out their genetic make-up and identify the genes involved in this rather special form of symbiosis. These bacteria were found to have no nod genes, usually essential for nodulation. Bradyrhizobium...

Could fungal collection hold the key to new life-saving drugs?

Survival of the rarest: Fruit flies shed light on the evolution of behavior

...a population that is already immune to more common strains of the virus. In this case, flies carry one of two versions of the foraging gene (either the "rover" or "sitter" type). Rover larvae move around more than sitter larvae while feeding and they are also more likely to explore new food patches than sitt...

New host species for avian influenza identified

An eight-year surveillance study, which included more than 36,000 wild migratory birds tested for low pathogenic avian influenza, details new data on host species, prevalence, and temporal and geographical variation of avian influenza ...

Sleepless for science: Flies show link between sleep, immune system in Stanford study
