Researchers have added fresh evidence that early exposure to vaccine-, bacterial- or microbiota-derived antigens has a dramatic effect on the diversity of antibodies an adult mammal will have to fight future infections by pathogens. This antibody diversity is called the clonal repertoire -- basically different single cells with distinct antibody potential that can multiply into a large clone of cells, all producing that distinct antibody.

Meconium--the earliest stool of an infant -- is composed of materials ingested during the time the infant spends in the uterus. A new study found that the types of normal bacteria found in the meconium may predict an infant's likelihood of later developing obesity.

Biologists have traced the stability of plant mitochondrial genomes to a particular gene - MSH1 - that plants have but animals don't. Their experiments could lend insight into why animal mitochondrial genomes tend to mutate.
