    AbstractMachine learning may be used as an alternative to traditional alignment-based approaches to identify new anti-microbial resistance (AMR) genes, especially when microbes cannot be grown in labs. In a previous study, the researchers created an algorithm that identified AMR genes using protein characteristics, called “features,” in Gram-negative bacteria using machine learning. In this study, the researchers show that this algorithm also works for Gram-positive bacteria, identifying AMR gen...

    Abstract Although there is a growing body of research that suggest sex differences in health outcomes of COVID-19, it is not understood whether immune responses to COVID-19 differ based on sex. In this study, the researchers evaluated sex differences in virus levels, SARS-CoV-2 specific antibodies, cytokines, and blood phenotype in COVID-19 patients with mild to moderate disease. The researchers found that male patients had more innate immune response activation, with higher cytokine and chemoki...
