New paper from Eisen lab and others … on challenges with relic RNA in SARS-CoV-2 environmental surveys

New paper out from my lab and other labs.

Zuniga-Montanez R, Coil DA, Eisen JA, Pechacek R, Guerrero RG, Kim M, Shapiro K, Bischel HN. The challenge of SARS-CoV-2 environmental monitoring in schools using floors and portable HEPA filtration units: Fresh or relic RNA? PLoS One. 2022 Apr 22;17(4):e0267212. doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0267212. PMID: 35452479; PMCID: PMC9032406.

This was a collaboration between my lab and labs of Heather Bischel and Karen Shapiro.

Funding was provided by Healthy Yolo Together/Healthy Davis Together.

Author: Jonathan Eisen

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
