Biomarker of Female Precancer Risk from HPV Found in Microbiome

Gardnerella bacteria were the dominant biomarker for the progression of HR-HPV and its effect is mediated by increased cervicovaginal bacterial diversity directly preceding the progression of a persistent infection to precancer.

U.K. to Use Nanopore Sequencing to Map COVID-19 Spread

A notable addition to the effort is a team from the University of Birmingham, led by Nick Loman, Ph.D., professor of Microbial Genomics and Bioinformatics in the Institute of Microbiology and Infection, whose lab is known for fusing cutting-edge sequencing with microbial genomics.
Myanmar: Rhesus Macaque

New Study Suggests COVID-19 Reinfection Unlikely

The study used four adult Chinese rhesus macaques and found that those monkeys that had been re-exposed to SARS-CoV-2, like the unexposed control monkey, showed no recurrence of COVID-19.
