    • CRISPR/Cas9 and genetic screens in malaria parasites : small genomes, big impact 

      Ishizaki, Takahiro; Hernandez, Sophia; Paoletta, Martina; Sanderson, Theo; Bushell, Ellen S. C. (Portland Press, 2022-06)
      The ∼30 Mb genomes of the Plasmodium parasites that cause malaria each encode ∼5000 genes, but the functions of the majority remain unknown. This is due to a paucity of functional annotation from sequence homology, which ...
    • Pathogenesis and immunobiology of brucellosis : review of brucella-host interactions 

      de Figueiredo, Paul; Ficht, Thomas A.; Rice-Ficht, Allison C.; Rossetti, Carlos Alberto; Adams, Leslie G. (Elsevier, 2015-06)
      This review of Brucellaehost interactions and immunobiology discusses recent discoveries as the basis for pathogenesis-informed rationales to prevent or treat brucellosis. Brucella spp., as animal pathogens, cause human ...
    • The role of farm environment and management in shaping the gut microbiota of poultry 

      Diaz Carrasco, Juan Maria; Redondo, Leandro Martin; Casanova, Natalia Andrea; Fernandez Miyakawa, Mariano Enrique (Springer Nature, 2022-01)
      Gut microbiota of poultry assembles from environmental sources mainly determined by farm management decisions such as feed composition, litter handling and sanitation practices, or the use of different feed additives. In ...
