At 10 a.m. (PST) on September 22, PLoS Pathogens (as well as PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases, and PLoS Computational Biology) migrated to a new manuscript submission system called PLoS Editorial Manager. In order to make this
PLoS Pathogens will be well represented at next week’s 2010 Annual Molecular Parasitology Meeting at Woods Hole. The meeting’s lead organizer Kami Kim (a long-time Pathogens editor), and a number of other journal editors will
In a study published on July 15 in PLoS Pathogens, researchers demonstrate how to genetically alter mosquitoes so they no longer transmit the Plasmodium falciparum parasite, which causes malaria in humans.
In the April 18th TWiV podcast, Vincent Racaniello, Alan Dove, Dickson Despommier, and Rich Condit discuss a recent PLoS Pathogens article concerning the connection between cold weather fronts and outbreaks of avian H5N1 influenza in Europe, "Spatial and Temporal Association of Outbreaks of H5N1 Influenza Virus Infection in Wild Birds with the 0°C Isotherm". Also discussed in the week's podcast – treating arthritis with a tanapox virus protein, and the Darwinian evolution of prions in cell culture.
In their Feb. 7, 2010 TWiV podcast Alan Dove, Rich Condit, and Vincent Racaniello, PLoS Pathogens Community Editor, consider ‘recent outbreaks of mumps in the UK, US, and Israel, protection of mice against 2009 H1N1 influenza A virus by 1918-like and classical swine H1N1 vaccines, and a virus-like particle vaccine for chikungunya virus.’
On the Dec. 6th TWiV podcast, Vincent Racaniello and Dickson Despommier discuss the symbiotic bacterium Wolbachia, the origin of the 2009 influenza H1N1 virus, and ‘the lure of original antigenic sin.’
A recent study in PLoS Computational Biology has been milking the presses this week…
