How We Can Spot the Next COVID-19 Variant Even Faster
In Durban, South Africa, scientists led by Dr. Tulio de Oliveira, director of the Centre for Epidemic Response and Innovation (CERI) at Stellenbosch University, were conducting routine genomic surveillance of SARS-CoV-2 from different regions when they noticed worrying variations in genomes clustered in Gauteng Province. They alerted their colleagues around the country and within their research network and simultaneously ramped up their analysis, eventually identifying additional examples of viruses with the new cluster of mutation in samples from other labs. Then, they sounded the alarm, notifying both their national gove...

As Omicron Hits, COVID-19 Case Counts Don ’t Mean What They Used To
America has begun the gradual process of accepting that COVID-19 is going to be endemic—meaning it will always be present in the population to some degree—due to inherent properties of the virus (animal reservoirs, high transmissibility, long period of infectiousness, symptoms similar to other pathogens), and will remain so for the foreseeable future. However, the U.S. has an impressive suite of tools to deal with this reality. Vaccine eligibility is widening and boosters are available for all adults who want one. Two effective oral antiviral drugs that prevent hospitalizations and death in people newly infecte...

From giraffes to snow leopards,gorillas to sea lions, zoos around the world have been inoculating their animals with an experimental Covid vaccine as an insurance policy against what they fear could be a similarly fatal illness for certain mammals.Meanwhile, veterinary scientists have been scrambling to understand the scale of Covid-19 infecti...

New Study Explores if a Vaccine Can Prevent Breast Cancer
Harnessing the immune system to target cancer has long resided on doctors’ wish lists, with very little promise of becoming reality. Because cancer cells are normal cells that mutate to grow out of control, directing the body to destroy these cells is a risky endeavor with potentially dangerous outcomes. Advances in immunotherapy, however, have led to powerful drugs that can help immune cells better distinguish between cancer cells and healthy ones, and researchers are now testing the idea of whether the immune system can be trained to recognize and destroy breast cancer cells in the same way that it dispatches virus...

Surf and Turf: How Seaweed Helps Cows Become Better Climate Citizens
Getting calories out of grass is not easy. That’s why cows and other ruminants, like goats and sheep, have multiple compartments in their stomachs to help them digest their food. One of those stomachs is populated by microbes that help break down plant matter into a more digestible form. The process, called enteric fermentation, also produces methane, a potent greenhouse gas that is 80 times more efficient at heating the atmosphere than carbon dioxide over the first 20 years it is in the atmosphere, before it breaks down into other compounds. A single cow releases around 250-500 liters of methane a day. There are app...

Marine Sgt. John Weldon was deployed in Syria when a dying, days-old puppy appeared at his military base in the middle of May. To save the newborn, which was barely bigger than the hand of the local who dropped it off, the infantryman scoured the Internet for a recipe for puppy formula that he could make with limited ingredients. He nursed the pup every two to three hours with a mixture of condensed milk, egg yolk, water and yogurt, using a medical breathing tube and a syringe. Weldon watched as the puppy he named Sully opened his eyes for the first time, as his baby teeth grew in, and as his puppy nose turn from speckled-...
