Coronavirus by the Numbers
Weizmann Institute of Science

The Weizmann Institute's Prof. Ron Milo and colleagues at Caltech and Berkeley used his biomass-analyzing techniques to sort the mass of coronavirus data, with interesting results. For example, they found that the coronavirus mutation accumulation rate is relatively slow, which is good news for vaccines

Self-Monitoring Your Sense of Smell May Help Detect Coronavirus
Weizmann Institute of Science

Reduced sense of smell is an early COVID-19 symptom for some. Weizmann Institute olfactory system expert Prof. Noam Sobel has developed SmellTracker, an online test for monitoring our own sense of smell. SmellTracker may help diagnose the virus early, and even distinguish between strains.

Glaciologists’ experiments lead to slip law for better forecasts of glacier speed, sea-level rise
Iowa State University

Backed by a decade of experiments that simulate the huge forces involved in glacier sliding, glaciologists have written a "slip law" that can be used in computer models of glacier movement and sea-level rise.
