Qiagen expands genomic tools for COVID-19 research

By The Science Advisory Board staff writers

Qiagen launched a SARS-CoV-2 primer panel that converts viral RNA samples into libraries that are ready for next-generation sequencing of the novel coronavirus genome.

The Qiaseq SARS-CoV-2 primer panel and software aim to speed up COVID-19 prevention and treatment by enabling deeper insights into the epidemiology, metatranscriptomics, immune response, and pathways of the novel coronavirus.

The software allows researchers to identify viral genome sequence variation across samples and to visualize strain divergence across populations and geographies using phylogenetic approaches.
