"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."

2019: "More than a technological change, this #biodigital convergence may transform the way we understand ourselves & cause us to redefine what we consider #human or natural."

We are delighted to announce the release of #PhageAI 0.10.0: extended repository and the new #phage #prediction tool: #chronic #lifecycle. 1/4
Each of the #phage genome has computed a new numerical vector representation by #Phage2Vec technology, re-classified #lifecycles and re-computed nearest neighborhood what introduced updated alignment-free top-10 similar #bacteriophages registry. 2/4
Furthermore, we released beta #bacteriophage #taxonomy #prediction tool.

Feel free to extend your account role from basic to Expert user using "My Profile" view, to access it from the @PhageAI. 3/4

There are reports coming out in the Danish media of novel mutations emerging in #SARSCoV2 in #mink tinyurl.com/y5gbwype

SARS-CoV-2 can infect multiple mammalian carnivores and has now been detected in multiple mink farms to date 👇
Across high coverage #SARSCoV2 genomes isolated from mink @GISAID we pick up unique mutations including one in the #spike protein which has appeared at least five times in phylogenetically distant #mink lineages. Image
This mutation, falling within the receptor binding domain, may be a good candidate for adaptation of #SARSCoV2 to #mink hosts. While this mutation has been seen in #SARSCov2 in human circulation it is rare. Currently available mink genomes fall in the diversity of human #SARSCoV2

📢🎉The work of #Bat1K is featured on the cover in the latest issue of @nature: “Six reference-quality #genomes reveal evolution of #bat adaptations” 🦇🧬 #bats Our thread 👇 on the paper:nature.com/articles/s4158… 📸: Olivier Farcy(1/n) Image
📢Have you ever wondered how 🦇 manage to do what they do? #bats have extraordinary adaptations, including powered #flight, laryngeal #echolocation, #vocal #learning and an exceptional #longevity with unique #immunity and resistance to #cancer! 📸: @DanielWhitby5 (2/n) Image
A #Bat1K team led by @Sonja_Vernes @EmmaTeeling1 @hillermich @TheGeneMyers has just published the raw genetic material that codes for these unique 🦇 adaptations and #superpowers in @nature! #bats #genomics #cool! (3/n) Image

Dear #Bat1K community! Facing the current situation we have something to share with you. Please keep on reading this thread on #bats and #COVIDー19 🦇👇 1/n
We all find ourselves in the midst of a #global #pandemic. Our life is changing and we all have to adapt. Meanwhile, we get to hear the news, densely packed with the #coronavirus, the disease it causes, and also: #bats. 2/n
#Researchers around the globe are doing their best to quickly understand the virus and its outbreak. Nevertheless, the rush to report and communicate complex scientific results has sometimes led to confusion, mistrust and ultimately even fear and hatred towards #bats 3/n

1/13 While #COVID19 warrants our attention and swift, concerted action, we cannot forget about the existing high global burden diseases like #tuberculosis.
2/13 In ”Exact mapping of Illumina blind spots in the Mycobacterium tuberculosis genome reveals platform-wide and workflow-specific biases” preview.tinyurl.com/vyhckyc, @crobinhold1 @Valafarlab & I provide a roadmap for navigating #Illumina coverage bias when #sequencing Mtb #genomes
3/13 We use a #phylogenomic filtering step to remove evolutionary signals isolating systematically low coverage and provide lists of #Illumina #blindspots for seven #sequencing workflows (lib prep + instrument) at single-base resolution
