Researchers from Stanford University have taken some remaining droplets from a Moderna COVID-19 vaccine vial and have determined the sequence of the mRNA for the SARS-CoV-2's spike protein that is present in immunization. The researchers have posted the sequence on the open-access website called GitHub.

In the researchers' post, it was written, "Sharing of sequence information for broadly used therapeutics has substantial benefit in design of improved clinical tools and precise diagnostics." Basically, knowing the vaccine's sequence allows researchers to differentiate between RNA from the vaccine and the RNA from the viral infection.

Here's what the authors wrote, "As the vaccine has been rolling out, these sequences have begun to show up in many different investigational and diagnostic studies. Knowing these sequences and having the ability to differentiate them from other RNAs in analyzing future biomedical data sets is of great utility."

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
