Grundlagen der #Pflanzenpathologie. Heute: das #Weizenverzwergungsvirus (WDV). (Auf Anregung von @Fischblog versuchen wir uns mal in einer neuen Twitterkategorie: JKI-Basics) 📜 (1/9)
Übertragen wird WDV von der #Wandersandzirpe (Psammotettix alienus), einer #Zwergzikade, die in fast ganz Europa verbreitet ist. Sticht sie das #Phloem einer Pflanze an, um Saft zu saugen, dringt das Virus mit dem Speichel in die Pflanze ein. (2/9)
Die Infektion äußert sich durch eine gestreifte Einfärbung der Blätter, Chlorose (Bleichsucht, häufig Gelbfärbung der Blätter), verringerte Zahl an Ähren, reduzierte Winterfestigkeit und das Absterben von Pflanzen in frühen Entwicklungsstadien. (3/9)

1. The mysterious case of Eddie Holmes and the SARS-COV-2 genome sequence publication delay

Seems that Eddie was playing the "innocent card"

2. Was the motive of’s rush release due to competition to get the first releaser credit for the sars-cov-2 genome?
3. @GISAID claims 'the access credentials of some of the persons listed as authors of Wuhan-hu-1 were among the access credentials used on January 10, 2020 to access the first genomes available on GISAID'

#UnAnnoFa il #genoma di "un #coronavirus" ricavato da un caso relativo al "focolaio di malattie respiratorie di #Wuhan" veniva pubblicato su #GenBank... 🧐#SARSCoV2
#UnAnnoFa... "Il focolaio di infezioni ha indotto timori di una potenziale epidemia dopo che la Cina ha dichiarato che il virus che lo ha causato è sconosciuto, ma proveniente dalla stessa famiglia di virus che ha causato le epidemie di #SARS e #MERS".🧐
#UnAnnoFa Diventa improvvisamente chiaro che il nuovo virus viaggia velocemente... in aereo. Nessun campanello di allarme in giro per il mondo? 🧐 #covid19…

In this study, we have developed a fast and cost-effective method
for reverse genetics of coronaviruses by combining two approaches developed by others..As the genomes can be divided into multiple short fragments, mutations can be introduced into individual
fragments easily. ImageImageImageImage

If anyone wants to investigate for themselves, here are all of the similar sequences to #SARSCoV2, #SARSCoV1, and #DISEASEXXX, a dog coronavirus. Note that #MERSCoV is ~64% similar to SARS-COV-2 and SARS-CoV2 is 80% similar to SARS-CoV-1.

These were download from @NIH #GenBank.

As a scientist, I'd like to note that it's impossible to study a bat coronavirus for 7 years within a research lab where they were known to recombine different viral fragments, and not end up having evolution happen that perhaps wouldn't have happened in the wild. Just saying.
Recombining viruses, you say? Wuhan, 2017.

Hu, B., Zeng, L. P., Yang, X. L., Ge, X. Y., Zhang, W., Li, B., ... & Luo, D. S. (2017). Discovery of a rich gene pool of bat SARS-related coronaviruses provides new insights into the origin of SARS coronavirus. PLoS pathogens, 13(11).
