Genetics and Genomics
Male sex, BMI, smoking and depression all increase biological age
A combined score of biological aging shows stronger links with physical and mental health than individual indicators.
Epidemiology and Global Health
Decision-support tool could reduce unnecessary antibiotic prescriptions for child diarrhoea
Scientists present an advanced computer modelling tool that integrates real-time data and could help paediatricians determine if a child with diarrhoea needs antibiotics.
Immunology and Inflammation
Could playing host to hookworms help prevent ageing?
Evidence is mounting to suggest that some helminth worms are ‘old friend’ commensals that can help us fight inflammation and prevent age-related disease.
Potential drug target found for treating rare genetic disorder in children
New study describes a potential drug target for Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome that may aid in the development of more effective treatments.
Biochemistry and Chemical Biology
Iron release may contribute to cell death in heart failure
A new study shows that the release of stored iron in heart cells may contribute to heart failure, suggesting potential new approaches to treatment.
Media Coverage: January roundup of eLife papers in the news

Microbiology and Infectious Disease
Vaccine shows potential against deadly leptospirosis bacteria
A potential vaccine protects hamsters and mice against death caused by multiple
species, and prevents kidney colonisation in mice.
Structural Biology and Molecular Biophysics
Scientists reveal structure of plants’ energy generators
The first 3D structure of the components of the mitochondrial electron transport chain in plants reveals unique features that could help in herbicide and pesticide development.
Spike proteins of SARS-CoV-2 relatives can evolve against immune responses
Viral relatives of SARS-CoV-2 can evolve to evade the human immune system, posing questions about the long-term effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines.
Genetics and Genomics
How dietary choice influences lifespan in fruit flies
Giving flies a choice of foods changes the chemical messaging in their brain that is responsible for coordinating metabolism, shortening their lifespan as a result.
