In addition to the effort in the genomic studies of macaques Earlier this month BGI the first monkey exome sequencing platform is based next-generation sequencing technology and monkey exome capture array published. MECA is a proprietary exome capture array designed by BGI for capturing the entire monkey exome. Combining this revolutionary BGI array and high throughput sequencing technology not only simplify the workflow exome sequencing experiments, but also to improve the cost effectiveness and the turnaround time.
In order to select the most important non – human primate model in a study, it is important application. To understand the genetic variation and inter-species differences between macaque species and genetic diversity between macaques and humans. Guojie said Dr. Zhang. Cooperation lead author of the study and director of the Centre for Comparative Genomic Evolution and BGI.. Confronted with this problem, scientists have gradually pay more attention to other macaque species / subspecies for a suitable alternative animal model, particularly in the Chinese rhesus macaques and cynomolgus / crab-eating macaque .

Pneumonia causes an estimated 19 percent of the 10 million child deaths annually worldwide.The bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae is responsible for up to half of all cases of severe childhood pneumonia in developing countries. It also causes serious bloodstream infections, meningitis and otitis media .
Professor Cutts commented: The results of this study are very encouraging and give us a clearer picture of pneumococcal disease in Africa In the control group, 65 percent of invasive disease episodes of serotypes contained in the nine – valent vaccine study. In an accompanying commentary, Marilla Lucero and Gail Williams, write that studies on a seven – valent and a nine-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine in California and South Africa found or similar results on the impact of the vaccine against pneumonia chest x-ray chest x-ray, however, there is some uncertainty about the comparability of results due to the different methods in reading X-rays used..

The authors suggest several achievable strategies for increasing immunization rates among HTR populations, including the distribution of vaccines in unconventional locations, such as needle – exchange programs and on street corners that are familiar locations to HTR people. The Academy CUES in 2004 developed Project VIVA, or Venue – Intensive Vaccines for Adults, a small quick vaccination approach. Project VIVA involved vaccinating people busy sidewalks in Harlem and go door-to-door in housing projects in the South Bronx. Bilingual outreach workers from the Academy working with licensed nurses gave the flu vaccine to over 1,000 homeless, homebound elderly, migrants, Minorities and drug addicts in a 10-day period during the 2005-06 influenza season..
