Medtech pins tax repeal hopes on a lame duck
Industry’s hopes for permanently doing away with the medical device tax rest with the lame-duck U.S. Senate, after the mid-term elections put next year’s House under Democratic control. The Lower Chamber in July voted 283-132 to repeal the tax, enacted in 2010 as part of the Affordable Care Act. The 2.3% top-line levy on U.S. medtech sales has been on hold since 2014, after a moratorium was extended earlier this year, but it’s slated to go back into effect in 2020. Medtech lost one of its biggest backers in Washington with the defeat of Minnesota’s Erik Paulsen in the mid-terms; it was his bill...

Symbiosis a driver of truffle diversity
(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) Truffles are the fruiting bodies of the ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungal symbionts residing on host plant roots. In many Ascomycota and Basidiomycota lineages, truffle-forming species have evolved independently in nearly every major group. This suggests that symbiosis drives evolution of truffle diversity and selects for specific traits. As reported in Nature Ecology& Evolution, an international team sought insights into the ECM lifestyle of truffle-forming species, conducting a comparative analysis of eight Pezizomycete fungi.
