Elaine Lyon, PhD, spoke with Mendelspod, a life sciences podcast, about the many challenges lab directors have been facing over the past month in developing good coronavirus diagnostic tests.
“It got to us before we had many papers to be looking at. We’ve been doing it so quickly. Usually in the scientific field, you do appropriate experiments, you analyze, you draw your conclusions, write up your findings, submit for publications, which is then peer reviewed and published and disseminated to the scientific community. Obviously that wasn’t able to happen here. So we’ve been communicating in other ways. Still going to what is published online. And yet we need to make sure this information is correct.”
