Researchers examine how disease is transmitted in livestock

Using new molecular techniques, a team of scientists has shown how a largely eradicated livestock disease, brucellosis, has been transmitted among cattle, bison, and elk in the greater Yellowstone area. The research may have important implications in the management of disease outbreaks between livestock and wildlife.

The scientists involved investigated the wildlife-livestock transmission pathways of […]

Researchers study science behind drug resistant bacteria

E. coli

Klebsiella pneumoniae strains of bacteria, or those better known as being resistant to antibiotics, are the focus on a new study where scientists are using genome sequencing capabilities to find out how exactly antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria come to be.

The scientists have already identified several mechanisms that bacteria use to […]
