Genomic sequencing is a valuable tool when fighting infectious disease that provides information about viral structure, antigenicity and virulence, and transmission patterns. During the COVID-19 pandemic, researchers have used whole genome sequencing to rapidly characterize this novel virus, track its spread, and reveal secrets that may limit its effects.
· Analyzes SARS-CoV-2 cell entry mechanisms
· Tracks how the virus enters and spreads within a population
· Uncovers what determines viral virulence
· Reveals how antibodies to the common cold might help fight COVID-19
