@BallouxFrancois *sigh* no.
@BallouxFrancois Knowledge is not divided into ‘science’ and ‘things that are subjective and/or emotional’. Otherwise there would be no history, no law, no philosophy etc. etc.
@BallouxFrancois Example: you can make a value judgement such as “Beethoven was a better composer than I am” without that being either subjective or ‘emotional’, whatever that might mean. It’s objectively true by any reasonable criteria.

A thread as promised on this biorxiv.org/content/10.110… from George Kassiotis’ lab including @kevinWng and others @thecrick, the result of incredible teamwork with @uclh.
This is a paper born of adversity, and contains two really important and unexpected findings. When the pandemic hit London hard – very hard – we had minimal diagnostic capacity. Our main focus was the critically important qPCR pipeline for diagnosing active infection,
3/n but George’s lab and with @RealMcCoyLab and @eleni_nastouli and colleagues at UCLH took on the task of developing diagnostic serology. One very annoying aspect of this is that there is some cross-reactivity between previous seasonal coronavirus infection and SARS-CoV-2.
