SARS-CoV-2 evolved to counter weakness caused by the virus's initial mutation, say researchers

Phys Dot Org 12 Jan 2023
Research by other scientists across the world has shown that this mutation enabled the virus's spike protein to be cut and primed it for rapid infection of cells lining the airway ... Then, they used these antibodies to track the location of spike proteins in human cells genetically engineered to produce the spiky surface molecules.

Graphite Bio Presents Preclinical Data for Novel Sequencing Method Used to Determine Gene Editing Outcomes ...

Maryville Daily Forum 11 Dec 2022
Since red blood cells lose their nucleus and genomic DNA during maturation, tracking gene editing outcomes in mature red blood cells via nucleic acid sequencing is not possible. However, immature red blood cells called reticulocytes retain RNA that can be sequenced in order to assess gene correction levels.
