SARS-CoV-2 Variant surveillance
Our group, in collaboration with the Connecticut Department of Health, has intensified the genomic surveillance of variants of SARS-CoV-2 in our region.
We developed a PCR protocol to screen for B.1.1.7, B.1.351, and P.1 for targeted sequencing.
Yale SARS-CoV-2 Surveillance Initiatives
We’re using a variety of tools, including viral sequencing, case surveillance, test development, and wastewater surveillance, in order to learn more about how SARS-CoV-2 is spreading in Connecticut.
