Divergent SARS-CoV-2 emerges in white-tailed deer

Our research about a divergent SARS-CoV-2 lineage in white-tailed deer has now been published in its peer-reviewed form in Nature Microbiology. The paper, entitled “Divergent SARS-CoV-2 variant emerges in white-tailed deer with deer-to-human transmission” is freely available here.


Congratulations to recent batty students Laura Scott and Ryan Holt on defending their M.Sc. theses at Trent!


We are happy to welcome new researchers to our group this autumn! Dr. Simon Tapper is a new postdoctoral researcher with the group. Meghan Ward, Laurelie Menelon, and Bryan Hughes are new M.Sc. students, and Rosemary Minns and Jason Smyrlis are new undergraduate researchers. A warm welcome to all!
