#CRISPR Defense Thwarted through Viral Cooperation http://bit.ly/2NvTzBT

The researchers discovered that to overcome destruction by CRISPR, phages have adapted by joining forces to rapidly infect a bacterium, sometimes with one phage sacrificing itself as the primer phage. #virology

Leukemia Cells Take the Fast Track to the #NervousSystem http://bit.ly/2L7Jf6z

Scientists have uncovered how acute lymphoblastic #leukemia (ALL) cells invade the central nervous system, a relatively common occurrence that makes the #cancer immeasurably more difficult to treat. Despite being a characteristic across ALL subtypes, the mechanism of how the CNS invasion occurs remains unknown. #blooddisorders
