Advancing sequencing and computational methods to identify genetic and phenotypic variations in Staphylococcus aureus from patients on mechanical ventilation

The Innovation in Respiratory Infections and Tuberculosis Diagnosis Group have used powerful genomics and computational tools to look at the genomes and phenotypes of Staphylococcus aureus isolated from patients on mechanical ventilation, suffering from different types of infection. The study, published in Toxins, identifies differences that could help doctors better manage patients with S. aureus infections in the future

Researchers identify mutations acquired by blood cells that accelerate heart failure progression

A study published in The Journal of the American College of Cardiology shows that clonal haematopoiesis is an important pathological process that accelerates and aggravates the clinical progression of heart failure, independently of the presence of atherosclerosis. The researchers of the Heart Disease Research Group the IGTP have participated in the study, led by the Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Cardiovasculares (CNIC) and the Hospital Universitario Virgen de Arrixaca in Murcia.
