Bacterian conspiracy? Superbugs are product of bacterian gene exchange

Bacterian conspiracy? Superbugs are product of bacterian gene exchange | Mapping current events | Scoop.it

"Researchers have discovered an underworld of genetic exchange among bacteria, one more vast than previously imagined." Bacteria exchange genes to create superbugs, sometimes at very great distances. According to Wired Mag "A comparison of thousands of bacterial genomes from around the world found genes flowing easily between species separated by hundreds, even thousands of miles. Whether the bacteria were related or not didn’t matter — a fascinating phenomenon on its own, but disturbing when the genes involved could turn pathogens into drug-resistant superbugs."

AlterPode: Your Other Place

AlterPode: Your Other Place | Mapping current events | Scoop.it

Working under the assumption that most U.S. residents don't have a great conception of European (or world) geography, we've taken the longitudinal span of the U.S. and condensed it to fit Europe's. Any location you choose in one of those geographies is automatically calculated for the other using a kind of relative scale; whatever percentage your location is along the continuum of east to west in one place is equated to that same percentage along the other place's east-west range. Makes no sense? It's probably best explained by the maps themselves.
