This morning I released a new eBook titled “Genetic Analysis of the COVID-19 Virus and Other Pathogens“.
The COVID-19 pandemic is reaching historic proportions. We are dealing with an infectious disease that is caused by a novel coronavirus we discovered just a few months ago. Since then, it has brought healthcare systems to the brink, it altered how we work, it changed how we socialize, and it impacted in a major way the world economy.
It has mobilized a global response trying to defeat it. There is no good answer currently available. The goal is to reach a sufficiently high level of immunization in the global population and to develop treatment options. In the meantime, we have to be efficient in diagnosing infections, isolating COVID-19 cases and study this virus by understanding its subtypes, its epidemiology, its routes of transmission, and its clinical manifestation.
In this eBook, I summarize to the best of my knowledge our current understanding of COVID-19 and the virus SARS-Cov-2 causing it. Most of the papers that I used to prepare this eBook were published since the beginning of this year. The body of knowledge is quickly expanding and evolving. Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) can deliver significant insights in this process. This eBook outlines how NGS can be used and how Golden Helix software solutions can be utilized in the process.
