1/ We've just finished 3 papers on #transposons #infection #epigenomics #graphGenomes, the result of an amazing collaboration with @LB_Barreiro and Tomi Pastinen. Start of a long 🧵 Image
2/ The first paper by lead author @katiearacena is:

Epigenetic variation impacts ancestry-associated differences in the transcriptional response to influenza infection Image
3/ @LB_Barreiro just talked about this paper at #BoG22 and @katiearacena has a poster so I'll let them explain their results!

Location matters for Covid Vaccine.
Booster Vaccination on the same side as the original Prime shot produces better quality antibodies than on the opposite side even though antibody titres were similar #CovidVaccine @VirusesImmunity #Immunity 1/n…
Booster Vaccination on the Ipsilateral (same) side produced higher avidity antibodies as opposed to booster on the contralateral (opposite side), #CovidVaccine 2/n…
Affinity vs Avidity
Affinity is the strength of a single antibody binding its cognate epitope whereas avidity relates to the strength of polyclonal antibodies (like in real antibody responses) binding to antigens as different antibodies can bind to different epitopes 3/n

This is TOO EXCITING not to tweet.

#Germany started proceedings against #Italy at the #ICJ for alleged violations of its sovereign immunity.

It’s been a long time in the making. Many of us are probably not surprised. 🫢

It’s time for Germany v. Italy—Reloaded.

A thread 🪡
After the ICJ’s 2012 judgment in Germany v. Italy (link below), the Italian Parliament passed Law 5/2013. That law required Italian courts to decline jurisdiction in claims against Germany of the kind which had given rise to the ICJ litigation. 👩🏻‍💼…
Little did they know that the #ConstitutionalCourt would declare that law unconstitutional a year later, in the now-famous Sentenza 238/2014. 🙅🏻‍♂️

The Constitutional Court declared that the law was incompatible with the fundamental right…

Para olvidarnos un poco de que #ElonMusk compró #Twitter...

Les quiero contar sobre unas TRAMPAS contra bacterias, virus y hongos que están ESCONDIDAS en varias superficies de nuestro cuerpo

Se llaman PÉPTIDOS ANTIMICROBIANOS🦠 y también son parte del sistema inmunitario

Los péptidos antimicrobianos (AMP, por sus siglas en inglés) se descubrieron en los años 60 gracias a investigaciones hechas en las preciosas pero mortales #ranitas moteadas del género Bombina¹ 🐸


#AntimicrobialPeptides #Biology
Debemos decir que los AMP no son exclusivos del #SerHumano, ni siquiera de los vertebrados, ya que los podemos encontrar desde microorganismos, hasta #plantas 🪴 e invertebrados (como #insectos)🦋

#2 B-COMPLEX/MULTI VITAMIN. Buy a liposomal or other form that increases bio-availability. Take 1 capsule w/Breakfast and Lunch. If you have stomach upset, try sublingual (under tongue) EZ Melt B-Complex in AM & Multi w/iron for Dinner.…
#3 OMEGA 3s. Fish Oil, Krill Oil, Algae Oil are all good sources of Omega 3. Be careful the EPA/DHA ratio. EPA helps with inflammation/DHA helps with cognition. You need both! Opt for a 1:1 or 2:1 ratio of DHA to EPA (2:1 ratio eg. 800 DHA/400EPA)…

12/14 Texas C19 Update: Bag o' Nothing


* Feel like I'm waiting on a wave that isn't coming
* Paddling on my surfboard in a calm ocean, might be time to paddle to shore and go home
* Widespread immunity? Starting to look that way
* Winter 2021 vs 2020 LOL

12/14 Testing

Tests filed by date of specimen collection, < 7-8 days old is incomplete

As of 12/4:
* Positivity rate really flattening, at 7.29%. Upcoming days are same
* Testing starting to flatten ~90K per day
* Cases will start flattening as well
* Covidestim Rt 1.18

12/14 - Cases

* Cases are batched by date received by the county
* Winter 2021 in a slow climb, but likely flattening in coming days.
* 2021 Winter wave vs 2020, both positivity and cases, isn't comparable right now. -3 full points, and -3K cases.

Picking up where @rita_rebollo left, we spent a couple of years annotating and analyzing the rest of the rice #weevil #genome (ok, the 15% left after removing repeats)! All info presented here is on the huge Additional file 2 in @BMCBiology… 1/n
@VargasChavezC and @gabaldonlab performed a comprehensive #phylogenomic analysis of the rice #weevil and found that this insect has a high gene expansion rate when compared to other beetles. 2/n Image
With the invaluable help of the SymT group from @INRAE_UMR_BF2I we have also reconstructed the #metabolic pathways from both #symbiotic partners. Specific losses of enzymes in the #weevil genome are limited while its #endosymbiont has suffered much more degradation. 3/n

Coincidence of a series of coincidences ! This thread is for those who love 💘 #coincidences. A 🧵 ... 1/n
It is just a coincidence that the World Economic Forum (#WEF) and Bill Gates et al reviewed a meeting in 2019 and predicted about a possible future viral pandemic, just before the #COVID #pandemic. It must be another plain coincidence that a viral pandemic began exactly 2/n
.. in the place where there is a level-4 #virology laboratory (#Wuhan). It was a coincidence that, whole world followed China's #lockdown policy with ZERO #scientific and #economic basis. 3/n

The power of Vitamins, Minerals, and Amino Acids is underrated !

They are the precursors of all your enzymes, neurotransmitters, and building blocks

It's preposterous that they are not being talked about more, wether in the context of #covid, #immunity, or just plain #health 😳
Look at how they vary in covid patients

...this is you body trying to make antioxidants, virus killing chemicals, and helper cells

Wouldn't it be wise to give your body the fuel it needs to accomplish these tasks ?

How about arginine

❓Have you got ‘superhuman immunity’?

💉Getting double-jabbed after a Covid infection may turbo-charge the immune system – and even provide a lasting defence against future variants

Thread 👇…
🦠There is growing scientific evidence that infection plus a double vaccination confers a kind of "superhuman immunity"
🥼Researchers have discovered that after a prior #Covid infection and two doses of either Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, some people’s immune systems produce a vast number of "flexible" antibodies.

✅These antibodies appear to be able to respond well to many forms of coronaviruses

1/n Dear @JimCarrey, as life gave you a voice that matters we beg you to use it for good once again.

Please #StepUpForFreedom

'We' are being discriminated, due to our choice of not getting vaccinated (yet) against Covid &/or our choice of saying no to injecting our children.👇
2/n Hear us out:

#EmotionalSituation: we suffer. Division is upon us. Many lost their jobs. Families and friends are being torn apart. Many Europeans, Canadians, Americans, Australians and other citizens of the world share this pain. #Wearemillions. 👇
3/n #FreedomOfSpeech: our voice is being shut and undermined in mass media. Pretexting public health good intentions, political leaders of our nations end up dismissing, if not censoring (on social media), solid arguments for our choice, even if bcked up by eminent scientists.👇

I am moving "The Great Pivot & Echoes of Nuremberg Part 2" #InformedConsent2 (the thread from @RWMaloneMD's gracious RT ) to my acct original here. Replies were breaking apart/not keeping continuity under his RT. Chronology is now intact. Apology for move. Image
Here is a link to PART 1 of “The Disregard of Informed Consent & Echoes of Nuremberg” (is hash tagged as #InformedConsent). That thread's continuity is intact and extensive, from March 31 to Aug 3.
