Combining vaccines with sugars allows them to be stored and transported, removing the troublesome cold chain and enabling delivery to hard to reach areas. A multi-disciplinary team created a vaccine-storage method that suspends the vaccine in a tiny one-dose container filled with a sugar-gel combination that dries and can be reconstituted with water.
The discovery of mcr-9, a gene that confers resistance to colistin, adds to the growing list of plasmid-mediated colistin resistance genes that were first described in E. coli in 2015. Because colistin is one of the world's few last-resort antibiotics, mcr-9 should be immediately considered when monitoring plasmid-mediated colistin resistance.

During cold exposure, it is well established that animals sustain their body temperature by activating heat production from a specialized tissue known as brown adipose tissue and promoting "browning" of white adipose tissue. Now, investigators have revealed the important role of gut microbiota in thermoregulation and adipose breakdown.
Researchers say they greatly simplified the method for cell-free protein synthesis
