He writes about viruses at <a href=”http://www.virology.ws” target=”_blank”>virology blog</a>.
  • Bacteria can exchange DNA with almost any other bacteria they come across, which can make it very difficult to seperate bacteria into neat taxonomic groups. An example is C. difficile, which not only exchanges DNA, but also carries out homologous recombination to share DNA.
  • Vaccines can be painful. Kids don’t like them, and parents don’t like seeing their children suffer. What can be done to make them more acceptable?
  • Influenza can be spread among people via contaminated surfaces. One solution is coating surfaces with a paint that inactivates virions.

I’ll be back next Friday with more selections.
