May the Fourth be with you as we embark on our next week of eLearning. Whether working from home or researching in the lab, reserve a few minutes each day to immerse yourself in science with content we’ve curated just for you.
If you’re looking for more eLearning content this week, join us at the LSE Virtual Event focusing on Immunology, Infectious Disease, and COVID-19 on May 7-8. Connect with us at our virtual booth.
Interested in how the immune system responds to viral pathogens? Watch our newest video to learn more about critical mediators involved in the innate immune response to viruses, including pathogen recognition receptors, anti-viral pathways, and interferon stimulated genes.
Check out our blog to learn more about a different type of virus. Mimiviruses are giant viruses that contain their own CRISPR-like immune system and add to the debate of whether or not viruses are alive.
The CDC has recently labeled anosmia, or the loss of the sense of smell, as one of the symptoms of COVID-19. Learn about olfactory cells, the markers used to track them, and potential mechanisms for how SARS-CoV-2 may be affecting olfaction in our latest video.
This week’s COVID-19 blog will describe the SARS-CoV-2 life cycle including virus entry, replicase assembly, and genome replication. Read the blog to learn more about these key steps and recent research aimed at stopping the virus life cycle.
