RNA sequencing contributes to new understanding of SARS-CoV-2 in intestinal organoids

A collaborative study of Dutch research groups shows -for the first time- that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is able to infect gut organoids. This reseach was done at the Hubrecht Institute in Utrecht, the Erasmus MC in Rotterdam and Maastricht University. The results were published last Friday in Science. While the lungs seem to be the predominantly…
