Bridge between science and a pandemic: Pleiss lab contributes to COVID testing successes

The process for elucidating pathways in RNA biology that are critical for gene expression in eukaryotes in Jeff Pleiss’s lab has been instrumental in the development of Cornell’s COVID testing program. Zach Dwyer (Class of 2014) helped write the scripts for the liquid handlers to prepare sample pools, which has been important in allowing Cornell COVID-19 Testing Laboratory (CCTL) to achieve such a high volume of test results. The Pleiss lab is also exploring other ways to support and streamline CCTL’s testing capabilities. Read the Cornell Chronicle article here.
