In PLOS Biology this week, read about new research into the way our immune and nervous systems interact with each other in response to disease. Also find out more in the accompanying synopsis. We
In PLOS Biology this week, you can read how plant pathogens convert flowers to leaves, how gut bugs might suppress bowel inflammation, and how endocytosis pathways talk to each other. Parasites are often able
In PLOS Biology this week you can read about animals’ adaptability to climate change, generation of antibody diversity, age-related sleep problems, economic models of poverty and a new form of the yeast Candida albicans.
The rise of superbugs like MRSA provides sobering evidence that pathogens can evolve resistance to even the most powerful drugs. But pathogens can evolve resistance to vaccines, too. One of the biggest worries for vaccine
