#Influenza virus has a segmented genome, which means that exchange of viral segments between one or more influenza virus subtypes—#reassortment—is possible, and can contribute to a shift in virulence and adaptation to new hosts. (1/3)
This study in @nature shows that reassortment events in #influenza virus #H9N2, which is widely circulating in #poultry populations worldwide and has the ability to infect #humans, can lead to novel reassortant viruses with variable phenotypic traits. (2/3)
This warrants the continuous monitoring of #influenza #H9N2 and co-circulating subtypes in avian hosts. (3/3)

Just out: Scientific report with overview of highly pathogenic avian #influenza from December 2022 to March 2023, by @efsa, @ECDC_EU, and EURL AI. A thread on the situation in poultry, wild birds, wild mammals, and humans in Europe and worldwide. (1/11)
efsa.europa.eu/en/efsajournal…
In #Europe, highly pathogenic avian #influenza virus #H5N1, clade 2.3.4.4b, was reported in 403 #poultry farms and 119 other captive bird holdings birds in 24 countries between 3 December 2022 and 1 March 2023. (2/11)
In Europe, an unexpected number of highly pathogenic avian #influenza virus #H5N1 detections in #seabirds were observed between 3 December 2022 and 1 March 2023, mainly in gull species and particularly in black-headed #gulls (Chroicocephalus ridibundus). (3/11)

First, kudos to the Chinese authors doing this work & a shoutout to @edwardcholmes also involved

I already flagged this Wang et al. preprint yesterday but it is worth explaining its significance to both the #origins discussion and the related pandemic #prevention discussion

A🧵
First: Origins

One thing that goes often down in all the noise surrounding #lableak is the fact that SARS-CoV-2, and actually all CoVs, possess #mosaic genomes.

This is because CoVs evolve not only through mutation but also through exchanging genetic elements with other CoVs
2/
This exchange is called '#recombination'.

One can imagine CoV genomes like colorful Lego brick walls, and recombination as taking one brick from a different virus and putting it in the wall of another; changing the color while keeping roughly the function.

Two avid sports fans plan to travel 40 miles to see a basketball game
One of them paid for his ticket
Other got one for free from a friend
A blizzard is announced for the night of the game.
Which of the two ticket holders is more likely to brave the blizzard to see the game?
The fan who paid for his ticket will be more determined to see the match because ‘he has more to lose’
Even as we articulate our answer, we realise the flaw in it. The money is already gone.
Taking the additional risk of driving in a snowstorm will not get it back.

Great it you're tech-savvy, well enough to take in the info & action it on your own at home BUT
I've got a PhD, a high IQ, & been tech-savvy since the 70s but when I'm really ill I'm 'as thick as two short planks'

They need to build #hospitals & employ #humans, not buy more tech. Have you ever been through a week where someone in your organisation didn't need the tech they use #troubleshooting?
Has your tech ever gone-down?
Now imagine, you're not very well & you have to sort it out.
Brexit lost us a lot of clinical staff. The staff in hospitals now are worked to the point of breaking & beyond. The answer isn't more tech. Tech needs to be integrated into a highly effective service with enough resources to cope.

"The Evolution of Strangers and Foreigners"

🧵 Today's SFI Seminar by @DoctorBugs (@Smithsonian)

santafe.edu/events/life-an…

cc @templeton_fdn
First, a loop back to his LAST (2020) SFI Seminar on 3D structure of living systems from biofilms to rainforest canopies:


And his #ComplexityPodcast episode on ideas from that talk and this one:
complexity.simplecast.com/episodes/52-Z7…
"People often think of societies as cooperative, but some societies are NOT very cooperative. I prefer to put the focus on them as groups."

"Societies are just one aspect of belonging. There are groups *within* societies & that's what psychologists mostly focus on."

No #sane man would live with a #ViolenceProne, #PhysicallyAbusive #woman, with a #Femdom, #Gynarchy based ideology, who's built like a #tank and #ScaresTheShit out of every man she encounters!

So whoever you are & wherever you are, your life must be lonely.

Please come to me!
Because, while no #sane man would want you, this clearly bonkers chap longs for an #assertive, #giantess of a #woman, with #MusclesOfSteel, who can make any fan of #NamioHarukawa's art work so week at the knees, he would virtually pine away with longing for her!
I know that, if I lived in such an #AbusiveRelationship, I'd want to #escape.

However, I don't live in an #abusive #relationship & I have the luxury of longing for a #powerful, #violent, #dominant & #controlling #woman who wants to #TotallyEnslave me, from whom #ThereIsNoEscape!

#HumanAnimalEntanglement. - Today: "The Curious Case of the #Dancing #Cranes".

1/ Among the many naturalistic animal depictions at early #Neolithic #GöbekliTepe in southeastern Turkey there are some bird depictions with suspiciously odd legs ...
2/ Generally, birds seem to take up a noteworthy role in the iconography at #GöbekliTepe (and other related #Neolithic sites).

The #cranes mentioned above in particular stand out due rather muscular legs and what seems a more human-like #anatomy, including 'knees' and 'toes'.
3/ Do these #crane representations evoke the impression of #masked people?

Yet it was suggested that this even could be more than simple #masquerade: The visualisation of a transformation into the animal itself in the course of #shamanistic rituals?

Would you like to know how we monitor & study large carnivores without catching or observing them by using #DNA from their poop, hairs, urine etc.?

A thread.

Share please!

@miljodir @NINAforskning @NINAnature @congenetics @gbike_cost @bearbiology Image
But you have no time to read? Then make sure you watch our short movie (w/ English & German subtitles):

The likelihood of running into a large carnivore in #Norway is very low. Fortunately, we do not need to see them or have direct contact to study them. #DNA-technology is a brilliant tool to learn where the animals roam, how many individuals we have, and which ones are related.

"The world needs a new system of governance for the buying & selling of data"
"Tech was already speeding ahead when the global #pandemic began. Now it is in even higher gear. More than 80% of business executives are accelerating plans to digitalize work processes & deploy new tech. By 2025, employers will divide work equally between #humans & #machines."
