SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus behind the COVID-19 pandemic, has infected hundreds of thousands of people. In response, the scientific community sprang into action to uncover its sequence, structure, and potential biological mechanisms. This information helps guide public health policies as well as drug, vaccine, and diagnostic test development. In this webinar, David Wang and Emily Troemel will discuss the emergence of SARS-CoV-2, diagnostic tests and possibilities for treatment. 

Topics to be covered

  • The basic biology of SARS-CoV-2 and its potential host-pathogen interactions
