Humans have been identified as the original hosts for the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus, commonly known as golden staph, according to an international study.
An international team of scientists have returned from a once-in-a-lifetime expedition that took them 400 km north-east of New Zealand.
Australian researchers have identified a new mechanism used by Henipaviruses in infection, and potential new targets for antivirals to treat them.
The fight against cystic fibrosis (CF) has taken a major step forward, with researchers showing that cells causing this genetic disorder could be successfully replaced with healthy ones.
Using human pluripotent stem cells, researchers have shown that a gene called NKX2-5 is responsible for regulating heart rhythm and heart muscle cell development.
A newly discovered molecular mechanism of gene regulation could help develop treatment strategies for genetic diseases.
Professor Daniel Szymanski used the model plant Arabidopsis to analyse how intracellular signalling networks pattern cell walls to generate particular cell shapes and sizes.
Ebola virus may have re-emerged in a woman a year after she survived an acute infection, potentially leading to the infection of her husband and two of their sons.
The N-ICE Trial will see researchers investigate whether N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) can reduce cravings for crystal methamphetamine, or 'ice'.
Scientists at Newcastle University, UK, have 3D-printed the first human corneas.
Scientists at a US-based hospital have identified the mechanism that determines how T cells specialise their development.
If you thought stress was a solely human trait, you thought wrong.
