White Paper – A protocol for rapid detection of SARS-CoV-2 using CRISPR: SARS-CoV-2 DETECTR
Given the global health emergency, rapid transmission, and severe respiratory disease associated with the outbreak of the 2019 novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), Mammoth Biosciences has reconfigured our DETECTR platform to rapidly and accurately detect SARS-CoV-2 using a visual lateral flow strip format within 30 minutes from sample to result.
Mammoth Interviews: Beeke Wienert – Postdoctoral Researcher at the Gladstone Institutes
We regularly invite scientists to present their research to the Mammoth team. This facilitates collaborations and expands our knowledge of important topics including CRISPR, gene editing, diagnostics, and more. Rather than keep what we learn to ourselves, we’ve decided to share it with you through our Mammoth interviews series. This series features short Q&As with the many […]
Antibiotic resistance – how it works and how we can fight it with CRISPR diagnostics
Many of the microorganisms that cause disease cannot be killed with common antibiotics. They are “antibiotic resistant.” This makes it difficult for physicians to ward off what were once easy-to-treat infections. In the U.S., antibiotic resistant infections cause 35,000 deaths per year. Unfortunately, the number of illnesses and deaths due to antibiotic resistant infections is […]
Brief summaries of interesting science – Mammoth digests
If you follow Mammoth on Twitter (and you should!), you may have noticed that we create threads summarizing cool research papers a few times a week. We call these threads #MammothDigests. They cover the key findings in papers on topics such as CRISPR, precision medicine, diagnostics, cancer, agriculture, and microbiology. You can find a few […]
