COVID-19's silent spread: Princeton researchers, including Ned Wingreen and Chadi Saad-Roy, explore how symptomless transmission helps pathogens thrive

A new study finds that silent transmission can be a successful evolutionary strategy for pathogens such as viruses like the one that causes COVID-19. The study features work by graduate student Chadi Saad-Roy and professors Bryan Grenfell and Simon Levin in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology as well as Ned Wingreen in the Department of Molecular Biology/Lewis Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics.
