Multi-Omics Resolves a Sharp Disease-State Shift between Mild and Moderate COVID-19

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Using serial blood draws from COVID-19 patients, Su et al. present an extensive multi-omics dataset of plasma and single PBMCs covering the first week of infection following clinical diagnosis, which includes information on plasma proteins, metabolites, and on PBMC transcriptomic and surface-protein data, immune receptor sequences, secreted proteins, and electronic health record data. Their integrated analysis identifies a major immunological shift between mild and moderate infection, which includes an increase in inflammation, drop in blood nutrients, and the emergence of novel immune cell subpopulations that intensify with disease severity.
