IgA dominates the early neutralizing antibody response to SARS-CoV-2

A major dogma in immunology has it that the IgM antibody response precedes secondary memory responses built on the production of IgG, IgA and, occasionaly, IgE. Here, we measured acute humoral responses to SARS-CoV-2, including the frequency of antibody-secreting […]

Machine Learning Maps Research Needs in COVID-19 Literature

Manually assessing the scope of the thousands of publications on the COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) pandemic is an overwhelming task. Shortcuts through metadata analysis (e.g., keywords) assume that studies are properly tagged. However, machine learning approaches can rapidly survey […]
