WEBINAR: SARS-CoV-2 variants – a deeper understanding of viral genome mutations

 

DESCRIPTION:

With the recent onset of SARS-CoV-2 variants, a deeper understanding is needed of viral genome mutations causing its instability. Whole genome sequencing is the only answer to track existing and identify novel variants.

Swift Biosciences developed a SARS-CoV-2 full genome coverage amplicon based panel, along with an elegant protocol.

SPEAKER:

Gerardas Dambrauskas, PhD
Director Commercial Operations
EMEA at Swift Biosciences
