No more business as usual: Agile and effective responses to emerging pathogen threats require open data and open analytics

In this Opinion piece, Dannon Baker et al discuss the need for data sharing and research cooperation to tackle the SARS-CoV-2 global health emergency. They use public domain SARS-CoV-2 genomic data to (1) highlight the importance of access to raw data and (2) show that existing community efforts in curation of biomedical software can support rapid, reproducible research during global health crises.

Lymph nodes—The neglected battlefield in tuberculosis  

Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) infection in lymph nodes is understudied. Aside from being sites of initiation of the adaptive immune system, lymph nodes also serve as niches of Mtb growth and persistence. In this Review, Ganchua and colleagues discuss lymph nodes in relation to Mtb vaccine efficacy and highlight that future studies on anti-TB treatments should include consideration of the effects on thoracic lymph nodes and not just the lungs.
