Over the past few months, scientists have gotten a better look at the terrible beauty of the coronavirus. Here’s my feature, with gorgeous images from the scientists and an awesome design by @13pt (This one is from & co.)
Read this all through, watch all the molecular animations, and shiver with admiration for the science of the age in which you are privileged to live.
How to make a killer virus aesthetic, by zooming in by electron microscopy, structural and cellular biology This is outstanding. by and featuring the work by multiple science teams
Please check out this stunning story by , produced by @13pt. It's easy to be cynical right now about....everything... but this story is truly inspiring. >> The Coronavirus Unveiled
How many time did you see protein structures in great details in a newspaper? I think that's a first for me. 😄👍🎉Thanks & for: Coronavirus Unveiled
This piece by Carl Zimmer in the NYTimes reviewing recent attempts to understand the structure of COVID is beautiful but also, IMHO, a genuine contribution to Science.
It's absolutely amazing to SEE this 'invisible enemy' and to see what we have learned in such a short time - and still there is so much to learn and to see. Great article by #COVID__19
Here are detailed images of the coronavirus that are helping scientists better understand and fight it.
Most beautiful 3D models of the #SARSCoV2 ever. Below, spike protein of the virus binding to the human ACE2 receptor. The successful binding then induces endocytosis (internalization of the virus into the human cell), thereby cellular infection. #COVID19
Guys, we made it in the !! This is truly massively exciting 🥳🥳🥳😍🤩🤩 Super congrats to all, lab and with the fab rendering on top from of the gorgeous glycosylated spike 😍 #glycotime #gotglycans
ICYMI, check out “The Coronavirus Unveiled," my story for
Wow The Coronavirus Unveiled: Microscopic Images of #SARSCoV2 - The New York Times
This article on the structural biology of #SARSCoV2 is amazing. Just look at the extensive glycosylation of the spike protein (right) as a tool for immune evasion. Post translational modifications (PTMs) galore.
Fascinating feature in "unveiling" SARS-CoV-2 images and discussing condensates-with a beautiful movie by our own Christine Roden.
What does SARS-CoV-2 look like? explores scientists’ efforts to map the virus’s “spike,” “shield” and other physical features for the .
Beautiful an devastating. How scientists are studying the SARS-CoV-2 virus in atomic detail, by the great in
You've never seen the coronavirus like this before
Radiologists understand the power of images. And as a radiologist, I am astonished by the power of these coronavirus images in article by . Definitely worth a look & also sharing with kids.
The illustrative power of digital journalism (and very smart science writing)—a nearly magical example: Kudos
Atomic structure of SARS-CoV-2 virus from the Lab of published in appeared on the home page of NYT with brilliant details by Carl Zimmer.
What a fantastic piece of journalism by . Detailed, plenty of explanation for laypersons without biology background \o/
Amazing piece by that updates #SARSCoV2 biochemistry and includes cool movies from lab and others #BqCBemeUV The Coronavirus Unveiled
Cryo-ET on the front page of New York Times.
Here some molecular details of the #coronavirus. It’s fascinating to able to look so closely at the virus. Great article by
Holy science this is incredible by
Weizmann scientists are playing a critical role in the worldwide effort to fight COVID-19. The ’s reports on the progress of Dr. Noam-Stern Ginossar:
Truly wonderful science journalism on the virus: Another feather in ’s cap (which is pretty damn feathered already)
I knew protein glycosylation causes major headaches, but seeing a structure is 🤯 (from 's article )
We know quite a bit about how #COVID19 virus works: Here's the coronavirus unveiled, by and featuring great images of #COVID19
Fantastic journey into the micro world - The Coronavirus Unveiled
The Coronavirus Unveiled
Great structural/computational bio story by with amazing images and videos. A whole section on spontaneously forming microdroplets 🤯
#Coronavirus #SARS-CoV-2: Remarkable images. So much science done in just 10 months.
Behold the awesome beauty -- and complexity -- of the coronavirus that has taken over our lives by @13pt
Stunning - and breathtaking science. In awe of what we are able to do and understand .... and yet what we are equally unable to do with this knowledge. The Coronavirus Unveiled: Microscopic Images of SARS-CoV-2 - The New York Times
The NYT has one of the most amazing science visualization teams in the world. Truly stunning.
This is super cool via
Great piece by on visualization of the coronavirus #covid19 #coronavirus #visualization #sciart #virology
A tour de force by the . Their discussion of the discovery of the structure and biology of SARS-CoV-2 is a fabulous read. Also, I think that "cryo-electron microscopy" is worthy of a mention!
The visual beauty of a mortal enemy: #coronavirus.
The Coronavirus Unveiled: While the past few months have delivered a flood of data about the virus, some studies have made it clear that it will take years to make sense of SARS-CoV-2.
The Coronavirus Unveiled
Carl Zimmer is a national treasure. Also read his highly accessible book A Planet of Viruses, which was written well before the current scourge and portends a coronaviruses induced pandemic. ⁦
Incredible, visual, accessible science journalism on #COVID__19
The Coronavirus Unveiled: Microscopic Images of SARS-CoV-2 - The New York Times
Brilliant article bringing structural biology to the general public. Thank you ⁦
