Event Description

Join the COVID-19 Journal Club for a discussion of the paper “Tracking changes in SARS-CoV-2 Spike: evidence that D614G increases infectivity of the COVID-19 virus”, by Bette Korber and colleagues from the Sheffield COVID-19 Genomics Group.

Michael LeVasseur, PhD, visiting assistant professor , will discuss the paper, which was published in Cell on June 10, 2020.

The paper describes a mutation in the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein that the researchers believes provides an advantage in viral transmission. This paper was originally submitted to the BioRxiv preprint server on April 30, 2020.

Please note that in an effort to achieve broader participation in this journal club across departments, we have changed the time of our meetings such that every other week we will be meeting from 12-1 PM and other weeks we will meet from 2-3 PM. However, we will continue meeting on Wednesdays.

We invite our colleagues and students from throughout Drexel University to take part in this discussion. If you have a paper or topic you’d like us to discuss or are interested in presenting, please reach out to LeVasseur at mtl55@drexel.edu.
