COVID-19 vaccines

Posted on

In many countries – at least in Europe and North America – a large proportion of the population has been vaccinated against COVID-19. In Denmark, the vaccines that have been used are the ones from BioNTech/Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca (the latter has however been discontinued). The two first ones use mRNA-based technology – the last one vector/DNA-technology. But how do they actually work? And what are the differences – and similarities? Watch this animated explainer, that I have made in collaboration with the genetics expert Lasse Folkersen.

Illustration for Olink / Nature Metabolism paper

I have created this illustration for Lasse Folkersen and Olink Proteomics. It is an illustration of the Olink technology named PEA, where specific antibodies are bound to DNA and function as a signaling system for detection of specific proteins. The technology by Olink Proteomics (www.olink.com/scallop-nature-metabolism/#) was used by Lasse Folkersen et al. in this paper published in Nature Metabolism (www.nature.com/articles/s42255-020-00287-2).
