Teach Me in 10 – Understanding COVID-19 Through "Omics" With Dr Clare Paterson

Video   Jul 23, 2020

 

In a COVID-19 special of Teach Me in 10, we're joined by Dr Clare Paterson, senior clinical R&D scientist at SomaLogic, who is currently working on using "omics" approaches to understand the biology of SARS-CoV-2. This work aims to identify biomarkers and predictive outcomes of COVID-19 infections.

In this talk, Clare eloquently explains to us why, despite being incredibly important in understanding the biology of COVID-19, genetics is only part of the story. What can other "omics" approaches that are complementary to genomics also teach us?

Learn more about some of the research studies Clare discusses and the application of omics in studying disease: 

Human Leukocyte Antigen Susceptibility Map for Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2

Genomewide Association Study of Severe Covid-19 with Respiratory Failure

Genetic architecture of host proteins interacting with SARS-CoV-2

Study Finds Two Genetic Variants Associated With COVID-19 Susceptibility

Clinical Omics – Genomics to Metabolomics and Onwards to the Multi-Omics Frontier
