The design of stabilizing mutations in the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein allows for high-yield production of a critical vaccine antigen.

In particular,
stabilization is very important for the Moderna vaccine design.

The unseen covid-19 risk for unvaccinated people

By Dan Keating and Leslie Shapiro

This story was published a few weeks ago but remains incredibly important as the delta variant spreads throughout the U.S.

The country’s declining covid-19 case rates present an unrealistically optimistic perspective for half of the nation — the half that is still not vaccinated.
