Teach Me in 10 – Microbial Epigenomics With Dr Pedro Oliveira

Video   Jul 02, 2020


In this instalment of Teach Me in 10, we're joined by Dr Pedro Oliveira, Senior Scientist at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, whose scientific interests center on the bioinformatics, comparative genomics and epigenomics of bacteria, particularly the interplay between methylation, gene flux and chromosome organization. In just 10 minutes, he teaches us about his use of third generation sequencing technologies to boost the field of epigenomics.

The Immune System Explained


Every second of your life you are under attack. Bacteria, viruses, spores and more living stuff wants to enter your body and use its resources for itself. The immune system is a powerful army of cells that fights like a T-Rex on speed and sacrifices itself for your survival. Without it you would die in no time. This sounds simple but the reality is complex, beautiful and just awesome. An animation of the immune system.


COVID Sweat Sensor Catches Your Immune System Before It Goes Berserk


Doctors recognized that patients who developed a surge of pro-inflammatory immune proteins, also known as a “cytokine storm,” following SARS-CoV-2 infection were often the sickest and at the greatest risk of dying. Researchers have developed a wristwatch-like device that can continuously track cytokine levels through a patient’s sweat, allowing doctors time to proactively administer medications like steroids if they see cytokine levels rising.
