Abstract
Date:  June 29, 2021
Time: 10:00am (PDT),  1:00pm (EDT)
 
SARS-CoV-2 continues to evolve and surveillance of variants is a necessity. Routine analysis of genetic sequence data allows the identification and characterization of variant viruses and aids in the investigation of how variants impact COVID-19 disease severity, the effectiveness of vaccines and treatments as well as diagnostic test accuracy. This webinar will discuss one laboratory's approach to routine genomic surveillance for rapid identification of new mutations, and discuss the use of SimplexaTM SARS-CoV-2 Variants Direct (RUO)* as a tool to rapidly identify mutations associated with variants of interest and concern together with next generation sequencing. 
 
Learning Objectives
  • Describe the concept of SARS-CoV-2 genetic mutation and how genetic variability could impact public health, medical initiatives, and diagnostic testing.
  • Explore testing algorithms that could help identify variants with potential medical importance.
  • List the major types of next generation sequencing platforms and compare and contrast test selection methods between NGS and multiplex real-time RT-PCR.
