THIS ARTICLE reflects how far we have come in our ability to identify and "map" DNA. Within days, the Coronavirus DNA code was broken, and this will hopefully help us better manage the current global outbreak.

Interesting tracking this virus on multiple levels...both in the scientific and "lay" communities. A lot of similarities and a number of differences.

I agree. But I wonder if you could provide specifics of what you mean?

I guess just the fact that whenever scientific stories spill over into the popular press there is invariably a good deal of necessary overlap...while at the same time being a clash of cultures. There is nothing scientific about someone saying that popping bubble wrap from a package shipped from China could be dangerous. But at least there is communication about the subject (without which, meaningful population-level vector control would be impossible). I just find it fascinating because "lay press" coverage of this subject is important, and yet it is often so clumsy and coarse.

Hey checking back on things here for the first time in a while, I'm curious about thoughts as to how COVID-19 is impacted the diversity and health (or lack thereof) of the microbiota. Any thoughts among other lurkers??
