An immunity gene evolved in Southeast Asia to protect against leprosy An immunity gene evolved in Southeast Asia to protect against leprosy
A mutation in an immune system gene rapidly rose in frequency in Southeast Asia approximately 50,000 years ago because it likely conferred protection against leprosy, which spread to the region from Africa around the same time.

Atomic-level motion may drive bacteria's ability to evade immune system defenses Atomic-level motion may drive bacteria's ability to evade immune system defenses
A study has found evidence that extremely small changes in how atoms move in bacterial proteins can play a big role in how these microorganisms function and evolve traits, such as antibiotic resistance.
