1/20 #LongThread/continuation but worth it! Again sorry for type-errors (I am glad that I survived it) Excerpt/Quote about Viral persistence & consequences to reactivation other pathogens! @microbeminded2 ♥️💐💙

“To me it is, yes (viral persistence as simplest explanation)…
2. because then it can start to explain so many of the other things that are measured. So we could explain some of the #autoantibody production by persistence of the virus, we can certainly explain how other pathogens may themselves be reactivated.
3. That’s definitely I think a trend that haven’t described as much … but all of us are seated with other organisms. Other pathogens that are #herpes viruses, Epstein-Barr, CytomegaloVirus but also sometimes for example #toxoplasma is a parasite that one third of the world …

"The promise & peril of the Bio Revolution"

"...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."

"Our deepening knowledge of #biology#genes, #microbiomes, & neural signals – is making it increasingly possible to "engineer life."... #gene drives applied to infectious-disease vectors [] could save many lives, but we may not be able to control them."

1/6: Another interesting presentation from the 8th @VELUX Daylight Symposium on the relationship between daylight & the indoor #microbiome

#daylight #daylighting #wellness; also reported on at @ArchDaily

2/6: The associated peer-reviewed study (accessed here:…) found little difference comparing the impact of visible vs ultraviolet light w/in daylight on the microbial communities found w/in indoor dust.

#daylight #daylighting #microbiome
3/6: However, it did find #daylight likely does have an impact on the composition of these communities. But there’s still a great deal to learn regarding the duration of exposure, intensity levels, ventilation, humidity, building materials, occupancy, microbial compositions, etc.

My first (review) paper from my postdoc with @ilanabrito123 is out! We discuss the need to truly internationalize human #microbiome research, which has been mostly centered around American/European populations (1/6th of the world's population). 1/n…
2 key issues we think should drive this conversation: (1) The human #microbiome has been associated with a variety of diseases; how many of these effects are truly 'global'? (2) We need more efforts centered around the health concerns of populations in the rest of the world. 2/n
On issue #1 - We need to learn much more about #microbiomes EVERYWHERE. India and China have launched their own nation-wide initiatives; the @globalmicrobiom initiative is working on it too! My personal opinion: we need even more local efforts (*cough cough @Colciencias 🇨🇴) 3/n

Posted slides from my talk for the @ucdavis "2019 ADVANCE Scholar Award Symposium" - talk was about #microbiomes #manels and the people who have inspired me to work on #STEMDiversity… #ucdavis #STEMDiversity 1/n
Also made a Wakelet of some of the Tweets from the Symposium - see… #ucdavis #STEMDiversity 2/n
I thought I had recorded my talk using @camtasia but the audio part seems to have failed so I am going to go through my talk here by annotating some of my slides #ucdavis #STEMDiversity 3/n

. @eslam_16884 shares his PhD research on the #microbiomes of heat resistant #RedSea #corals with @PSUmBiome! Image
. @eslam_16884 overviews rich history of bleaching monitoring on the GBR. Meanwhile, coral surveys in the #RedSea....... are starting to gain momentum! Image
The extreme environments of the #RedSes leverages a neat study system to investigate why “Red sea corals like it hot” 🤒
