    Extensive data resource for microbiome research

    HZI bioinformaticians bring to light a natural CRISPR system of the human microbiome. Essentially, we are never alone – because they are always with us: billions of microorganisms – such as bacteria, viruses or fungi – inhabit our bodies. They live on our skin, in our mouths, noses or intestines – depending on the preferences of our tiny cohabitants and the demands they make of their environment. "For the most part, the microbiota consists of bacteria that are ...

    How a protein variant could explain resistance to sleeping sickness drug

    A specific variant of the surface protein VSG of African trypanosomes, the causative agents of sleeping sickness, is associated with resistance to the important drug Suramin. Scientists at the German Cancer Research Center have now been able to find a possible explanation for the formation of resistance based on the crystal structure of this protein variant.
