New Discoveries In The Fields of Microbiology.
In microbiology, there are a lot of new discoveries in the field.
  • There's a new gene trap mutagenesis that produced the date, the disruption of over 1000 mammalian genes, provided a rapid, genome-wide strategy to indentify candidate cellular genes required for virus replication
  • Discovery that carcinogenic agents induce genome-wide loss of heterozygosity (LOH)
  • Development of genetically-engineered mouse models of lymphocyte deficiences for studies of microbial and autoimmune diseases
  • Invention of a new method of intracellular delivery of biologically active peptides and proteins into cells 
  • Debelopment of a new class of HIV inhibitors
  • Development of Intracellular Protein Immunotherapy that targets acute and chronic diseases mediated by microbial, autoimmune, and metabolic inflammation
  • Discovery of a new iron transport system in Staphylococcus areus
