Para C news articles and press releases

The article describing the reconstruction of a Salmonella genome from 800 years ago picked up a lot of press. I’m secretly quite proud it got into Newsweek:

  •, “Salmonella: medieval skeleton unlocks ancient history of potentially deadly bacteria”. 7-25-18
  •, “Medieval skeleton offers clues to bacterial killer’s origins”. 19-7-18.
  • Nature News, “Collapse of Aztec society linked to catastrophic salmonella outbreak”. 16-2-2017
  •, “Evidence of Salmonella Paratyphi C found for the first time in medieval northern Europe”. 19-7-2018
  •, “DNA from skeleton puts enteric fever in medieval Europe”
  •, “Kerangka dari Abad Pertengahan Ungkap Jejak Perkembangan Salmonella”. 26-7-18
  •, “Medieval skeleton sheds light on deadly Salmonella”. 24-7-2018
