Greg Wray and team used statistical methods they developed to identify adaptive changes that arose in the SARS-CoV-2 genome in humans, but not in closely related coronaviruses found in bats and pangolins to help figure out what makes the virus so unique. Read more
Lingchong You, Ph.D., and Ashutosh Chilkoti, Ph.D., are collaborating with researchers at Washington University in St. Louis, Princeton University, and University of North Carolina on a five-year, $7.5 million Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) award from the Department of Defense.
“For the longest time, the central dogma of biology was that structure equals function,” Chilkoti said. “But some proteins lack that structure, so they had been considered unimportant.” Research now, though, is showing that is not the case.
