The aim of this study was to characterize antimicrobial resistance in Staphylococcus aureus, including methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA), recovered from raw retail meat products purchased in the Washington, D.C., area. From March to August 2008, 694 samples of ground beef (n = 198), ground pork (n = 300), and ground turkey (n = 196) were collected by(More)
Genomic structural variation is an important and abundant source of genetic and phenotypic variation. We report an initial analysis of copy number variations (CNVs) in cattle selected for resistance or susceptibility to intestinal nematodes. We performed three array comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) experiments to compare Angus cattle with extreme(More)
BACKGROUND Since 2008 there has been a substantial fall in the incidence of Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) in the UK, though it is unclear what contribution local and governmental interventions have made to this reduction. AIM To assess the value of retrospective analysis using a segmented regression model and single factor analysis of variance(More)
Oligonucleotide-based therapies represent novel strategies for manipulating the expression and function of target proteins and are undergoing clinical evaluation for the treatment of viral diseases and malignancies. However, poor biological stability and cellular delivery represent potential limitations to the therapeutic development of oligonucleotides.(More)
