    Quantifying the relationship between SARS-CoV-2 viral load and infectiousness

    Aurélien Marc et al.
    Viral dynamic modeling reveals the relationship between SARS-CoV-2 viral load and infectiousness and allows to anticipate the effects of variants of concern and of vaccination on transmission.
  1. Annual Report: 2020 in review

    We reflect on eLife’s efforts to drive change in scientific and medical publishing during an eventful year.

    Revisiting the guidelines for ending isolation for COVID-19 patients

    Yong Dam Jeong et al.
    Compared with the approach isolating COVID-19 patients for a fixed period, the approach using repeated PCR testing mitigates unnecessarily lengthy isolation of patients while minimizing the risk of further transmission.

    FnCas9-based CRISPR diagnostic for rapid and accurate detection of major SARS-CoV-2 variants on a paper strip

    Manoj Kumar et al.
    A newly developed lateral flow assay can diagnose mutational signatures of major SARS CoV-2 variants in a rapid, inexpensive, and sequence-free manner.

    Smartphone screen testing, a novel pre-diagnostic method to identify SARS-CoV-2 infectious individuals

    Rodrigo M Young et al.
    PCR testing for SARS-CoV-2 from samples taken from smartphone screens, Phone Screen Testing, provides a sensitive, cost-effective, simple, and non-invasive new method that could boost COVID-19 mass test screening.

    Cancer immunotherapy by NC410, a LAIR-2 Fc protein blocking human LAIR-collagen interaction

    M Ines Pascoal Ramos et al.
    NC410, a LAIR-2 Fc protein blocking LAIR-collagen interaction, might be a powerful new strategy for cancer immunotherapy for collagen-rich immune-excluded tumors.

    Early maternal loss leads to short- but not long-term effects on diurnal cortisol slopes in wild chimpanzees

    Cédric Girard-Buttoz et al.
    Wild chimpanzees contrast to humans since adult male chimpanzees do not exhibit physiological indicators of biological embedding of the stress associated to maternal loss early in life.

    Introduction to the EQIPD quality system

    Anton Bespalov et al.
    A system has been developed that supports generation of reliable basic biomedical research data while being open-access and lean with no negative impact on freedom of scientific exploration.

    Tachykinin signaling inhibits task-specific behavioral responsiveness in honeybee workers

    Bin Han et al.
    Neuropeptide tachykinin signaling acts as master regulator of behavioral specialization in honeybees by differentially modulating worker responsiveness to task-specific stimuli.
