Prehistoric origins of stomach ulcers uncovered
... scientists combined their genetic analysis with a computer
simulation the modelled the spread of the bacteria across the globe. This showed that it migrated from Eastern Africa at almost exactly the same time as early humans, approximately 60,000 years ago. The UK research effort was led by Dr Francois Ba...
Loss of a universal tRNA feature reported
...The researchers used bioinformatic tools such as a computer
script specifically written by the group to probe the tRNA genes in the alphaproteobacteria group. Examination of the corrected tRNAHis sequences revealed that a group of alphaproteobacteria fails to encode a G (guanylate) at the -1 position of the...
