SARS-CoV-2 Omicron Detection Antibodies
The Omicron (B.1.1.529) strain is by far the most divergent SARS-CoV-2 variant. It is critical to re-evaluate the effectiveness of the current diagnostics and therapeutics against this new variant. Sino Biological has developed recombinant Omicron Spike and Nucleocapsid proteins and validated all available antibodies against the Omicron proteins.
Do Phytoplankton Evolve in Rhythm With the Earth’s Orbit of the Sun?
A new study published in Nature hypothesizes that the degree of circularity of the Earth’s orbit influences the evolution of phytoplankton.
Oestrogen Hormones Help Develop a Sense of Smell, Shows Fish Study
