Moderna mRNA ‘Hacked’ by Scientists, Posted Online

It’s considered one of the most effective COVID-19 vaccines. Now, scientists say they’ve hacked the genetic sequence behind Moderna’s revolutionary mRNA vaccine – and shared the code with the world online – for free.

The Stanford University researchers sequenced Moderna’s patented drug by studying leftover vaccine vials – with permission from US authorities.

The mRNA is the key mechanism used in this vaccine. It triggers the body’s own cells to produce the protein needed to defeat the coronavirus.
