Uncovering Uncultivated Microbes in the Human Gut

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

A human’s health is shaped both by environmental factors and the body’s interactions with the microbiome, particularly in the gut. Genome sequences are critical for characterizing individual microbes and understanding their functional roles. However, previous studies have estimated that only 50 percent of species in the gut microbiome have a sequenced genome, in part because many species have not yet been cultivated for study.

Scientists Track Patterns of Island Growth in Crystals

Argonne National Laboratory

In a new study from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory, scientists have found that the seemingly random arrangement of islands that form to begin new layers during crystal growth can actually be very similar from layer to layer. The discovery may help scientists better understand of some of the mechanisms behind defect formation, as well as develop techniques to synthesize new types of crystals.

Hey Doc, How’s My Immune System Doing?

American Technion Society

A team of Israeli and American researchers says the state of a person’s immune system provides the most accurate measurement of a person’s health. They have developed a way to gauge “immune age,” which could bring about new frontiers in personalized medical treatment, drug and vaccine clinical development, and more.

Ultrasound stimulation of spleen could lead to new treatments for inflammatory arthritis

University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering

Researchers involved in a study using mice showed that they could actually ‘turn down’ the inflammatory response in arthritis with daily noninvasive ultrasound stimulation of the spleen. The research is a first step to developing new treatment options for more than a million people in the United States who currently suffer from rheumatoid arthritis.
