Johns Hopkins Medicine

By combing through the entire genetic sequences of a person with a lung scarring disease and 13 of the person’s relatives, Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers say they have found a coding error in a single gene that is likely responsible for a rare form of the disease and the abnormally short protective DNA caps on chromosomes long associated with it.

Periodontitis Bacteria Love Colon and Dirt Microbes

Georgia Institute of Technology

Mythbuster: The idea that bacterial collaborations within microbiomes, like in the mouth, have evolved to be generous and exclusive very much appears to be wrong. In an extensive experiment, they were possible between random microbes, and members of the same microbiome were stingy with each other.
