Professor Robin Gasser, Faculty of Veterinary & Agricultural Science, University of Melbourne and his Chinese partners, have published the genome of yet another parasite in BioMedCentral this month. Full details: bit.ly/2ferEqq.
Researchers at St Vincent’s Institute of Medical Research (SVI) in Melbourne in collaboration with scientists at the Bio21 Institute, the University of Melbourne, the New York School of Medicine and the University of Oklahoma in the USA, have shown how the bacteria Gardnerella vaginalis targets cells and causes infection in women. Gardnerella vaginalis is the bacteria primarily responsible for bacterial vaginosis (BV), the most common vaginal infection worldwide. About 21 million women under the age of 49 suffer from an outbreak of BV at least once per year. One of the bacteria’s tools for establishing infection is a protein toxin, vaginolysin.

The work was published in the journal Structure. It was made possible through funding provided by the Australian Research Council and National Health and Medical Research Council.
