Abstract: The global COVID-19 pandemic has led to the online proliferation of health-, political-, and conspiratorial-based misinformation. Understanding the reach and belief in this misinformation is vital to managing this crisis, as well as future crises. The results from our global survey finds a troubling reach of and belief in COVID-related misinformation, as well as a correlation with those that primarily consume news from social media, and, in the United States, a strong correlation with political leaning.

Field performance and public health response using the BinaxNOW TM Rapid SARS-CoV-2 antigen detection assay during community-based testing
This study was a field validation of BinaxNow rapid antigen testing, including among asymptomatic persons and children. These tests are now available over the counter.
Abstract: Among 3,302 persons tested for SARS-CoV-2 by BinaxNOW TM and RT-PCR in a community setting, rapid assay sensitivity was 100%/98.5%/89% using RT-PCR Ct thresholds of 30, 35 and none. The specificity was 99.9%. Performance was high across ages and those with and without symptoms. Rapid resulting permitted immediate public health action.

Spatial transcriptional signatures define margin morphogenesis along the proximal–distal and medio-lateral axes in tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) leaves
Introduction: We’ve cleaned and wrangled the data, we’ve made picture-perfect plots, and we’ve performed our statistical analysis. Now it’s time to share our findings with the world. This is a step that novices and experts alike balk at. That blank screen of our future manuscript is intimidating.
