Hamburg, 14 February 2011 Two in one Scientists from EMBL Hamburg reveal new insights into the workings of an enzyme from Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacterium that causes tuberculosis. The findings present new opportunities for developing organism-specific drugs, which target the pathogen but leave other microorganisms, which are beneficial to us, untouched.

Heidelberg, 20 April 2011 What's your gut type? Scientists at EMBL Heidelberg and collaborators have found that humans have 3 different gut types. The study, published today in Nature, also uncovers microbial genetic markers that are related to traits like age, gender and body-mass index. The findings could help diagnose and predict outcomes for diseases like colo-rectal cancer, and inform treatment.
