Scientists have a powerful new tool for controlling the coronavirus: Its own genetic code.
Just as with testing, the nation has failed to lead when it comes to using genome sequencing to track the coronavirus.

If we knew fine-scale details about the timing of COVID transmission and the rates of transmission among children and between children and adults, I bet we would have the confidence to safely reopen our schools or could make the changes needed to do so. washingtonpost.com/graphics/2020/…

1/ This was an excellent piece on the use of genomic sequencing to better understand #covid19 spread. One of the biggest challenges is understanding how and why spread is happening. washingtonpost.com/graphics/2020/…

Scientists have a powerful new tool for controlling the #coronavirus: Its own genetic code. USA, home 2 the world’s biggest outbreak, has failed to tap the technique’s full potential. washingtonpost.com/graphics/2020/…

Fascinating piece and graphic accompaniment on genetic sequencing — a tool which the U.S. has not used to its full advantage and one that could help us track the spread of the pandemic. Experts like @arimoin have advocated to sequence the WH outbreak. washingtonpost.com/graphics/2020/…

Nice look at the promise of genomic epidemiology for Covid-19, and how the U.S. government has so far fumbled its chance to apply this tool for control of the epidemic. (also, can I move to Scienceville? sounds nice there) washingtonpost.com/graphics/2020/…
