A Cell Press partner journal
See the unseen. Change the unchanged.
The Innovation ¡ª published by Cell Press in partnership with members of the Youth
Innovation Promotion Association (YIPA),a part of the Chinese Academy of
Sciences¡ªis a new broad-scope, open access journal publishing basic and applied
research that has impact for the benefit of society.
On the cover: The pace of science and technology is accelerating, and the future is arriving much faster. During the great process of reaching the future, the now highly comprehensive and interdisciplinary network of science, so-called 'ScienceX' by The Innovation, plays a more important role than ever before. We believe the development of interdisciplinary science and technology concerns our destiny in the coming future.

The single point mutation T9I in the envelope protein of the SARS-CoV-2 Omicron variant changes channel properties and attenuates virus production and virulence


In November 2021, a new SARS-CoV-2 variant emerged in South Africa and was designated the fifth variant of concern and named Omicron. It was detected in more than 26 countries worldwide, including China. The Omicron variant is highly transmissible and has extensive morbidity, which has raised concerns related to antiviral therapy. Recent reports have revealed that the Omicron variant exhibits a longer cycle of viral shedding and a decreased replication capacity and results in substantially attenuated lung pathology, indicating that the pathogenic ability of the Omicron variant is lower than that of previous variants.
