Ist SARS-COV-2 parteiisch?

Warum sind manche Länder von COVID-19 stärker betroffen als andere? Könnten es die unterschiedlichen Strategien sein, die von Regierung unternommen werden, Quarantäne, oder die Unterschiede in der Herdenimmunität in den betreffenden genetischen Populationen? Oder könnte die Antwort im Virus selbst liegen?

Do you know how vaccines are made?

Researchers first identify the surface molecules like proteins or sugars which are used by the viruses to first contact the human cells. These molecules are then analyzed for if they can be used to produce an immune response. This is not possible unless the genetic sequence of the virus must be known.

Know your pathogens!

We are surrounded by microbes or microorganisms but not all of them are harmful. Actually some are beneficial for us and harmful microbes are called pathogens. Let Genaxxon help you know them better!

Another secret of SARS-COV-2 revealed!

Extraction and isolation of viral RNA is the first step in the detection and testing of viral RNA by real-time RT-PCR. Here we compare different methods and protocols for extraction of viral RNA.
Nested RT-PCR and real-time RT-PCR are the most common methods for the analysis of viral infections (see Robert Koch Institute >). In contrast to examinations with ELISA or IFA, this can be done at an earlier stage of infection.
Die Extraktion und Isolation viraler RNA ist der erste Schritt zum Nachweis und Test von Virus-RNA über real-time RT-PCR. Wir stellen hier verschiedene Methoden und Protokolle zur Extraktion viraler RNA vor.
A special regulatory strategy of genome translation in RNA viruses and bacterias is mediated via RNA thermometers. RNA thermometers (RNATs) are secondary structures in RNA sequences that are essential for the virulence of the organism. However the base pairing in the RNA thermometers can be altered due to various factors like the thermal denaturation.
