It all depends on a person's geneotype, phenotype, their immune system, fitness and the microbes living in their bodies, pathogen and how they interact. There is a whole world down there we are just discovering.
This is the Boom of Microbiology.

This is story about it all. The role of Jane Kangaroo is played by Fauci and Big Pharma. The role of Horton is played alternately by researchers around the world who understand the power and danger of pathogens, spike protein, mRNA gene therapy.

Inspired by @philipcball's question, here is a 🧵of some of the most beautiful #biology experiments (in my opinion)

Disclaimer: Not in order and no details (links provided)
1-Messelson-Stahl discovery of semi-conservative DNA replication (Okay that's obvious but bear with me)

Year: 1958

Side-note: notice how humble the paper title is.

2-Hershey-Chase:

Viruses replicate by way of their nucleic acids (not proteins)

DNA is the origin of hereditary material

Year: 1952

"We're talking about [] redesigning organisms... not just edit #genomes but also [], write a new code for life. We'll have write-level permissions. We already started to see some of that this year. #COVID19 #vaccines, they make use of engineered code in the form of #mRNA."
Apr 2021, #WEF: "The new technologies driving the #4IR will be key to the global recovery... but only if they are harnessed properly."

"Synthetic #biology includes #CRISPR, the gene-editing technology currently being used to fight #COVID19."

"...the world cheered [] that 3 #gene-based COVID19 #vaccines – 1 developed by German #biotech co. BioNTech in collab. w/ Pfizer, another by [] biotech firm Moderna, & a 3rd by [] AstraZeneca – had proved effective in clinical trials."
"But in October, researchers revealed that off-target effects of the #CRISPR-Cas9 #gene-editing tool used to repair a blindness-causing gene in the early stages of human #embryo development often eliminated an entire #chromosome or a large part of it."

This. Is. Bio. War.

You are being lied to.
Fauci, and Big Pharma rely upon your ignorance of basic biology to cover up the BioWar THEY started.
To understand the basic biology that is: SarsCov2,
Covid, the 💉, mRNA, VAER, pharma business, and immunology WATCH @jjcouey 's 📺⬇️
He is a very experienced biology professor, and one of the first people investigating the lab leak.
He explains it all on his site, watch 1st, and in sequential Twitch shows, watch 2nd.
If you don't understand the recent 📺,
watch earlier ones.
We must LEARN BIOLOGY OR PERISH.⬇️

La siguiente pandemia 🦠🤒

La mayoría de las enfermedades infecciosas nuevas surgen por el contacto entre animales y humanos

Es importante conocer la cantidad de patógenos transmitidos por esta vía, especialmente #virus y así poder limitar el contacto con ellos

El probable origen del #SARSCoV2 en un mercado de animales ha puesto al descubierto una vez más, el papel que juega el comercio de #VidaSilvestre sobre posibles zoonosis, es decir, enfermedades transmitidas de animales al ser humano 🦆➡️👵🏻

2/10
Otra #pandemia de origen zoonotico es la de #VIH

Este #virus se ha transmitido en múltiples ocasiones desde otros primates hacia el ser humano debido al contacto muy probablemente por la caza para obtener carne y para comerciar como mascotas exóticas 🐒

To make it also official via Twitter: my first PhD paper came out! We provide a review on the research history of the temporal skull region in tetrapods and how people discussed the evolution of temporal openings from the 19th century until today.
bit.ly/2TR2si1
(1/9)
What really baffled our minds was the high amount of terminology introduced for the temporal morphology. Next to the well known "Synapsida" or "Diapsida", and lesser known "stegokrotaphic", there were also mostly forgotten terms like "Anomapsida" or "pseudomonozygokrotaph".
(2/9)
Also the taxonomic content of some of the taxa named after their temporal openings differed over time. For example, did you know that the original Synapsida also included sauropterygians, turtles, and "cotylosaurs", but no "pelycosaurs"?

Thread #ReconstructionOfReligiousThoughts in #Islam By #Allama Iqbal
The book we need to read to identify what it means to be muslim, why we have become stagnant in last 6 centuries, why we have apologetic religious outlook, why we are not proud muslim Image
Few people attain knighthood from the West. Fewer are worthy of being called “Allama” in the East. However, there is not a single individual besides Sir Allama Dr Muhammad Iqbal whose name starts with both “Sir” & “Allama”and has a doctor’s title to go along.
This shows the extremely wide spectrum of thought Iqbal had encompassed while embarking on an intellectual and spiritual journey which no other Muslim undertook. And its embodied in the book Reconstruction Of Religious Thought In Islam.

Science behind Gowtram Genetics - Do you know why every time you sit in a puja the priest asks you for Gowtra? What is Gowtram system? Why do we have this? Why do we consider this to decide marriages? Why should sons carry the gowtram of father, why not daughter?
How/why does gowtra of a daughter change after she gets married? What is the logic? In fact this is an amazing genetic science we follow.
Let's see the science of genetics behind gowtra systems.
The word GOWTRA formed from two Sanskrit words GAU (means cow) Trahi (means shed)
Gowtra means cowshed. Gowtra is like cowshed protecting a particular male lineage.
We identify our male lineage/gowtra by considering to be descendants of the 8 great MahaRishis (Saptarishis + Bharadwaja MahaRishi). All the other gowtras were evolved from these only.

Today, on #TheMisplacedMenagerie -

We report the exotic (for #India) apple #snail, #Pomacea diffusa, also known as the spike topped apple snail, from the #Mumbai region, as part of our ongoing studies on #urbanwildlife, and the #ecology of introduced species, in #India, Mumbai.
The study was officially published in the 'ELA Journal of Forestry and Wildlife' - a peer reviewed #science journal, which is also the official journal of the #Maharashtra State #Forest Department.

Link to paper: researchgate.net/publication/35…

Spiked Topped Apple Snails in #Mumbai (and other parts of #India) are the direct result of the #aquarium trade - either as accidental, or deliberate releases from home aquaria.

"#Economics in #Nouns and #Verbs"

Below, we share key excerpts from SFI External Prof W. Brian Arthur's (@Stanford, @PARCinc) latest, available at arxiv.org/abs/2104.01868, which we recommend for its elucidation of key blind spots in economic thinking & how to address them...
"Different means 'see' differently—often they reveal different versions of the same object. #MRI looks at body parts and reveals soft tissue structure; #CT scanning looks at the same body parts and reveals bone structure. There is no 'correct' version of internal body parts."
"#Mathematics is powerful in #economics—and necessary—but I don’t believe that it is suited to describing all that is interesting in an economy. In fact I don’t believe that there is any privileged way to view the economy. There are useful ways and less useful ones."

And so Day 3 of my story of God at work in my life as part of #OfGodAndMe #ThisNunsStory series. Yesterday mention of the book, The Silver Sword seems to have struck a chord with many so perhaps its not out of place to mention that today 7th April is #Worldhealthday 1/20
Ian Serraillier ended his talks by showing this photo with the words, ‘No child should ever again have that expression on his face’. My hope this the UK as host of the upcoming #G7 summit will prioritise Universal health care for all. #UCH 2/20

Lately I have been talking to some students and friends about various places to look for academic positions. Because there is no ONE-FOR-ALL space to find opportunities, here is a thread summarizing the ones I know of 1/34 #AcademicTwitter #phdchat #phd #internationalPhD
Having said that, I must emphasize that this #database is skewed towards #Asians and #Indians (and other #internationals) to study in #EU #UK or #USA in general and is certainly not exhaustive. I have no info. on #NSF grants for example or grants within India. 2/34
Most importantly, I’m hoping this thread helps #colouredwomeninSTEM & #WomeninSTEM, please feel free to RT. And as a #biologist, I am more aware of databases in #ecology, #wildlife, #evolution and #conservation circles, feel free to add more and share. Let’s dive right in! 3/34
