Scientists discover unknown virus in 'throwaway' DNA

(University of Oxford) A chance discovery has opened up a new method of finding unknown viruses.In research published in the journal Virus Evolution, scientists from Oxford University's Department of Zoology have revealed that Next-Generation Sequencing and its associated online DNA databases could be used in the field of viral discovery. They have developed algorithms that detect DNA from viruses that happen to be in fish blood or tissue samples, and could be used to identify viruses in a range of different species.

Authors: Phillips PK, Caldis MW, Hristov AD, Lee AS, Lucey MR Abstract The manufacture and consumption of alcohol are ubiquitous and as old as time. Alcohol use disorder (AUD) is defined as a problematic pattern of alcohol use leading to clinically significant impairment. The physical injuries that result from excessive alcohol consumption are varied including end-organ damage to liver (alcohol-associated liver disease or ALD), pancreas, brain and heart, and systemic consequences including several forms of cancer. Liver transplantation (LT) remains the treatment of last resort for life-threatening liver disease. LT...

All doctors know that asemen analysishas a number of limitations. While it can tell us how many sperm a man has, and how well they are swimming, they cannot answer they key question the infertile man is asking - Can I get my wife pregnant with my sperm or not ?Now the right thing to do is to acknowledge the limitations of our sperm tests, and then move on with helping them to have a baby ! The beauty is that while the ability of our technology to test male infertility is poor, our technology for treating it is amazingly good, because we can bypass all the in vivo hurdles by doing IVF with ICSI. . This means  we can do...

So my current semester just end and grades are out...I got a D on physic 1, is medical school still viable? I was taking ochem2, human genetic and physic while working full time with two little ones. I spend countless of hours studying and practicing but for some reason I cannot comprehend physic. My semester end with Ochem:A, human genetic:A, physic ( I was 0.8% from C but the Professor refuse to give me a C, claiming it is unfair to other students). Any advise is welcome.

Abstract Background/Aims: Fluid retention occurs in patients with heart failure, accounting for dyspnea. We investigated the diagnostic implication of body fluid status, assessed by bio-impedance analysis (BIA), in acute heart failure (AHF) among patients who presented with dyspnea. Methods: A total of 100 patients who presented with dyspnea and suspected with AHF were analyzed in this study. We enrolled 50 AHF and 50 non-AHF patients discriminated through echocardiographic analysis and Framingham criteria and were matched by age and sex. Body composition was analyzed using a multifrequency BIA. Results:...

Hello SDN &Fellow SOs! This is a bit long, so please forgive me. TL;DR: Non-Dr SO vents rather more extensively than anyone has time to read about Dr. SO of 4 years beginning acting like a supreme douche towards the middle of his second year of FM residency. Non-Dr SO seeks advice on rebuilding the lost respect in the relationship. He’s the one in medicine and I’m the clueless outsider— more specifically, he’s in his second year of family medicine residency. As to the ‘clueless... Rebuilding Respect
