Enrayer le choléra en ciblant le voisinage des malades

S’appuyant sur les données récoltées lors d’une épidémie de choléra au Tchad, les chercheurs de l’EPFL ont démontré qu’une stratégie d’intervention ciblée à l’échelle du voisinage des cas de choléra endiguerait u

Ils traquent un parasite qui décime les poissons

En Suisse, mais aussi dans toute l’Europe et aux États-Unis, les poissons d’eau douce sont victimes d’une maladie mortelle qui sévit en été et disparaît en hiver. Elle est provoquée par un parasite qui se propage dans les riv
