Herd immunity became that finish line, as experts including Anthony Fauci, now President Joe Biden’s chief...

Monkeypox is spreading undetected because testing is a mess — echoing the early days of covid

Capacity is up, but the U.S. is struggling to connect people with tests.When an infectious disease outbreak starts, it’s like a brush fire. The flames are small and, in theory, can be contained if chains of transmission — blowing, burning debris — are snuffed out before they spark more small fires that eventually grow into a raging epidemic.The key to it all is testing, a lesson the United States painfully learned early on with covid and is once again confronting as monkeypox spreads across the country.Two months into this latest epidemic, the U.S. has enlisted commercial labs to increase...

New Hybrid Species Remix Old Genes Creatively

Clues from fish diversity suggest that interbreeding between species could be a major mechanism of fast speciation.September 10, 2019To biologists eager to understand how one species can split into two, the apple maggot fly seemed primed to spill the genetic secrets.Sometime within the past 170 years, populations of Rhagoletis pomonella jumped from infecting the fruits of native hawthorn trees in North America to infecting apple trees introduced by European colonists, a move that formed an incipient species.
