Slow Change

NPR reports that the SARS-CoV-2 genome does not appear to accumulate mutations quickly, which should help vaccine efforts.

Watch It Go

The Wall Street Journal has put together maps of how SARS-CoV-2 has spread based on genetic mutations that have accrued in the virus.

Researchers have been using Nextstrain, which includes data for thousands of SARS-CoV-2 genomes, to study how the virus accrues mutations over time.

Still Following It

Bloomberg writes that Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center's Trevor Bedford and his colleagues continue to use viral genomics to track SARS-CoV-2.

As labs implement TMB workflows in-house, studies are showing that its is possible to validate assays with cutoff points remaining stable across complex clinical cohorts and in different drug contexts.

The Poor P Value

A group of statisticians wants to eliminate researchers' reliance on 'statistical significance,' according to NPR.

Independent teams used ScarTrace and MAP-seq to follow cell type development in zebrafish and characterize axonal projections in the mouse visual cortex, respectively.
