Surveillance of SARS-Cov-2 mutations is essential to managing both on-going and future pandemics. Growing concerns over the recent fast-spreading, novel coronavirus variants highlights the need for increased sequencing to detect mutations quickly and prevent the spread of new strains. Next-generation sequencing (NGS) allows labs to: 

  • Track virus transmission routes 
  • Identify viral mutations that can avoid detection by established molecular diagnostic tests 
  • Identify viral mutations that can evade the immune system as well as affect vaccine efficacy 
  • Identify strains that may require public health action 
  • Identify co-infections and antimicrobial resistance alleles 

In this seminar, we will cover the Illumina COVIDSeq Test (RUO) and additional methods for SARS-CoV-2 surveillance, including requirements, workflow, and analysis.
