In a COVID-19 special of Teach Me in 10, we're joined by 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:
