Examples of our work

Here are a few examples of our services. More information and price indications on request.

Literature research

EXAMPLE. An academic research group asked for a literature review, to spend the leftover of a research grant. This resulted in a high-quality review paper, which not only increased the visibility of the research group, but also identified knowledge gaps which were used to draft a follow-up grant proposal.

EXAMPLE. A company producing detection kits wanted to extend their range products, but needed assistance in analysing the latest publications in a complex research area. In close collaboration with their Research and Development department, MMGC identified the 'hot' literature to quickly design the most suitable detection strategy.

EXAMPLE. A client demanded a thorough literature review on bacterial virulence, and the spread of virulence genes in natural bacterial populations. MMGC produced a report reviewing over 300 references, which was printed on CD, with all reference links providing the abstract of the cited papers.

EXAMPLE. A company had the impression their product was not receiving a fair press. It commissioned MMGC to perform a literature search and asked for an unbiased opinion. The results were not completely what the company had wanted to hear, but sometimes an independent mind is all it needs to be put on the right track.

EXAMPLE. A governmental agency wanted an update on genetically modified animals in the food chain. An extensive literature search by MMGC was summarized in a comprehensible report, written for the non-expert.

Latest News

Hepatitis A was once an insect virus

We performed a thorough analysis of Hepatitis A virus and discovered that this virus most likely had an ancestor virus replicating in insects. The work was initiated by MMGC in collaboration with colleagues from UAMS.

Past vaccination with BCG (Tuberculosis) does not protect against Covid-19

In spite of publications in top journals predicting otherwise, an analysis of international data clearly indicated lack of protection. The work was initiated by MMGC in collaboration with independent scolars. The findings were published as early as July 2020 here, and lack of protection by GCG was later confirmed by other research group in clinical trials. That is not to say that vaccination doesn't work: the internationally approved SARS-CoV-2 vaccines are highly effective to prevent severe disease and death.
