To continue celebrating #BiodiversityDay, we would like to introduce one of the institutions that work together with UNU-BIOLAC to train researchers in the region: "Red de Genética para la Conservación" – @ReGeneC

#UNUBIOLAC2022 #Biotechnology #Biotech Image
Since 2004, @ReGeneC has worked alongside different experts in genetics to help form researchers from Latin America and The Caribbean. They contribute with an integral vision of the conservation process, considering diverse aspects of the context where it will be applied.🧬 Image
@ReGeneC supports the conservation of the region's biodiversity by preparing different professionals in specialized courses to apply genetics to their respective research. 👩‍🔬

Up to this moment, ReGeneC has fourteen courses and two conferences under its belt. Image

I am delighted that, after years of collaborative and interdisciplinary efforts, our work is finally out nature.com/articles/s4146…
A joint effort with a wonderful team of colleagues (@ico2s , @portabolomics) spanning software engineering (@nocoffeenocode), synthetic biology & environmental microbiology (@vdlorenzo_CNB) and social sciences (@LPelechova , @PEALSncl )
We take a small but important step in developing tools for #OpenScience and more #reproducible strain engineering.

¿Qué pensaríais si os digo que el futuro de la sostenibilidad está en el Reino Fungi? La biotecnología ha llegado al mejor reino del mundo y ha venido para quedarse. ¿Queréis saber más?

👇 ¡Dentro hilo! 👇

🍄🧱 BIOMATERIALES CON HONGOS 🧱🍄
La mayoría estamos "hartos" de oír hablar de la utilidad de los hongos (desde el punto de vista de su aplicación práctica) bien en la cocina, bien por su importancia en la industria alimentaria o bien por avances como la Penincilina.
Lo que es posible que no sepáis es que en los últimos años se ha explorado con éxito su uso en la fabricación de biomateriales… ¿y sabéis qué? Es una auténtica pasada. ¡Vamos a verlo!

The ICSP voted to include the rank "phylum" into the code of bacterial nomenclature, and NCBI taxonomy followed.

Many people voiced anger for this #taxonomygate bc... twitter. Here some thoughts on the matter... (1/n)
There were many complains about nomenclature being worthless or irrelevant. As a microbial ecologist, I understand where this comes from, particularly with bioinformatic tools that require only spaceholders as identifiers. As a microbiologist, I think this is short-sighted. (2)
But #microbialtaxonomy is important for other people too. For example, it is central for diagnostics in #healthcare and #foodsafety and #biotechnology. Many who don't care about ecology or evolution need this.
It might not matter to you, but it matters to others. (3)

"Triple threat"

Lockstep #Propaganda - is not about your health.

Sept 27 2021: "You can get immunized against the #flu & #COVID-19... the FDA is currently reviewing an application for an #RSV #vaccine created by #Moderna."

verywellhealth.com/fall-covid-rsv…
Oct 3, 2021, #Moderna: "We believe Moderna could be first to market with a COVID + Flu + #RSV booster #vaccine. A single vaccine to cover multiple viruses."

Polish up your smartphone passports & roll up your sleeve. There is money to be made. Arms to jab.

#Biotechnology
Oct 8 2021: "#Moderna also announced the initiation of dosing in the Phase 1 study of its solely owned #RSV vaccine candidate (#mRNA-1345). This Phase 1 study includes initial dosing in adults, followed by age de-escalation into #children."
