Abstract

Ribonucleic acid (RNA) is a central but often overlooked molecule in the story of the pandemic. It not only shapes how SARS-CoV-2 behaves but also how researchers investigate and fight it. By analysing RNA biology in more detail, says Stephan Guttinger (LSE), philosophers and historians of science could gain powerful new tools to assess the unfolding of the pandemic and science’s response to it.
