In a world first Monash University scientists have discovered that HGT can bend the rules of evolution.

The discovery is outlined in a study published today in PNAS, which was led by ARC Future Fellow Dr Mike McDonald and PhD candidate Laura Woods, both from the Monash University School of Biological Sciences.

“HGT is very important in microbial evolution, especially for the evolution of antibiotic resistance in human pathogens,” said Dr McDonald.

“Genes for antibiotic resistance in the bacteria that live in hospitals, sewers and farms, are common because there are antibiotics in these places, due to human activities,” he said.

“However, when scientists check environments without antibiotics, for example, forests or estuaries, antibiotic resistance genes can still be detected.”

These Popular NordicTrack Adjustable Dumbbells Are Back in Stock

Like millions of other people, the past six months have forced me to come to grips with just how little space and equipment I need to achieve a great workout from home. With a pullup bar, a kettlebell, some resistance bands—or maybe a TRX band if I’m feeling fancy—no muscle group is safe from hypertrophy.

Computer model uses virus ‘appearance’ to better predict winter flu strains

Combining genetic and experimental data into models about the influenza virus can help predict more accurately which strains will be most common during the next winter, says a study published recently in eLife.

The models could make the design of flu vaccines more accurate, providing fuller protection against a virus that causes around half a million deaths each year globally.

Vaccines are the best protection we have against the flu. But the virus changes its appearance to our immune system every year, requiring researchers to update the vaccine to match. Since a new vaccine takes almost a year to make, flu researchers must predict which flu viruses look the most like the viruses of the future.

The gold-standard ways of studying influenza involve laboratory experiments looking at a key molecule that coats the virus called haemagglutinin. But these methods are labour-intensive and take a long time. Researchers have focused

Brookfield on the Future of Retail

Indeed, one of the most important roles of physical stores these days is enabling consumers to buy online and pick up in store, especially during the pandemic. Brookfield noted this is the fastest-growing and highest-margin distribution channel for retailers, as it reduces last-mile distribution and inventory management costs. So retailers will continue to need physical locations.

Retail centers of the future

According to Darnall, the “evolution of retail has real implications for real estate.” The company believes that to win, a retail property needs to become a hub of daily life and commerce. That means meeting retailers’ needs to provide their customers a centralized place of discovery, fulfillment, and returns. It also means these spaces need to cater to consumers’ daily needs, blending retail with dining, entertainment, fitness, medical, and education.

Brookfield envisions winning retail properties as mini-cities where people can live, work, and play. On one hand, these destination

Philippe Coutinho credits Bayern Munich stint for improved fitness

Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho has credited the season he spent on loan at Bayern Munich with transforming his approach to fitness.

Speaking to Goal during international duty, the Brazilian attacking midfielder opened up on his experiences at the Bavarian club in detail.

“At Bayern, I learned a lot about work, because they are very intense in training. A natural consequence is the evolution in the physical part, which I have really had, because you work a lot and I have worked a lot.

“I already had this way of thinking, but now I have to dedicate myself three or four times more than normal to be successful.” 

Coutinho, 28, was shunted out of the first team fold by former Barcelona manager Quique Setien but has been offered a new lease of life by current manager Ronald Koeman.

Timo Werner at Chelsea: How can Frank Lampard get the best from him? | Football News

Timo Werner will have been disappointed to miss out on Germany’s game against Turkey on Wednesday evening, suffering with flu-like symptoms. His last trip back yielded a goal against Spain in Berlin but there was nothing unusual about that. The forward also scored seven goals in his final eight appearances for RB Leipzig, underlining his status as one of the game’s great goalscorers.

Four games into his Premier League journey with Chelsea, there have been glimpses of why Werner can be so dangerous. He has looked bright, particularly when winning a penalty against Brighton. There was also a fine strike to open the scoring in the Carabao Cup tie against Tottenham. But that first Premier League goal has eluded Werner thus far.

There is no cause for alarm. And yet, perhaps aware that forwards thrive on goals, Frank Lampard went onto the Stamford Bridge pitch to put an arm around
