Advanced NGS solutions for SARS-CoV-2 monitoring and insights

Speaker

Abstract

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is the primary technology used to identify genomic targets for vaccine development, detect emerging viral strains and monitor transmission patterns. Enhanced options for NGS on Illumina systems from the Invitrogen Collibri portfolio of library prep technology now make it possible to identify multiple potentially pathogenic strains of a disease and understand the rate of evolution quickly, with improved precision.

Learning Objectives:

1. Learn how to enable rapid sequencing SARS-CoV-2 samples for real-time monitoring of transmission patterns and emerging strains

2. Why do some people become severely ill compared to those who do not, even when infected with the same viral strain? Learn about new tools to investigate differences in gene expression among these groups
