    Schistosoma mansoni parasite. In 2009 researchers from the UT Health Science Center San Antonio and other institutions crack the genetic code of Schistosoma mansoni, a flatworm that can live up to 10 years on average in humans. The parasite is endemic in many tropical areas of the world. #getuv #viqua

    Colorful killers. A new vaccine protects mice against parasites that cause leishmaniasis. A vaccine could save tens of thousands of lives every year. Scientists report that they have used snippets of DNA to spur mice to fight back against parasites responsible for the illness, an approach they hope to soon begin testing in people. Leishmaniasis is caused by microscopic parasites of genus Leishmania; 20 different species can sicken humans, hits poor residents of tropical countries hardest.

    Bee stinger. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the end of the abdomen of a small tropical bee, showing the barbed stinger (needle-like). The stinger is used to inject venom when the bee feels threatened. Unlike wasps, bee stingers have barbs which prevent the bee from pulling them out. Instead, the stinger stays in the victims skin and is ripped out of the bee's body, killing the bee. Magnification x70 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
