Title: COVID-19 infection mechanism, rate of infection and tools for testing and monitoring the disease spread
Abstract:Since COVID-19 was first reported in Wuhan, China last November, 2019, the virus has spread rapidly around the globe. Since the virus has a relatively long latent period and can also give a wide range of symptoms, many of the infected may unknowingly circulate disease throughout the population. Mass testing overcomes this problem by assuring more of the infected are aware and undergoing self-quarantine. This talk describes the major infection mechanism, rate of infection and the impact of social distancing on COVID-19 transmission with solutions and tools to test and monitor disease spread.

Title: Accelerate COVID-19 Antibody Discovery with Single B-Cell Technology
Abstract: Antibody discovery for COVID-19 is as arduous and strenuous as finding a needle in a haystack. Single B-cell technology (SBCT) is indispensable for accessing a large antibody repertoire of an immune experienced animal and the ability to interrogate each individual cells, rather than to measure the average of a cell pool. In this talk, we will 1) introduce the general approaches of SBCT 2) GenScript offerings with case study; 3) summarize the advantages of SBCT screening
