OVERVIEW

The recent Coronavirus epidemic has led to a rapid response from the viral research and therapeutics community around the world.  These research teams need robust and reliable genomics tools to classify and characterize viral samples, and genome engineering tools to build vaccines to help stop the spread of this deadly virus.  

 

Twist’s unique silicon-based DNA writing platform allows for the rapid development of NGS panels for viral detection and characterization of samples, and our Clonal Genes and Gene Fragments allow for quick development of subunit vaccines from one or more antigen-presenting viral genes or peptide sequences, which bypasses the need for scientists to handle life and potentially dangerous pathogens, and eliminates the time needed to clone DNA fragments.

VIRUS DETECTION

NGS for Virus Detection

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) offers high-throughput, specific identification of infections in blood samples. In the case of viral infections, however, obtaining genetic material sufficient for sequencing can be a challenge due to the extremely low levels of virus often present. In these situations, target enrichment which uses DNA-based hybridization probes to isolate specific sequences out of a mixed genomic sample can increase the sensitivity and specificity of NGS-based efforts.

 

Twist has been working with the Viral research community to build NGS TE panels to screen for and characterize this novel Coronavirus strain.  Please contact us to access this panel content or to build a custom panel targeting your specific gene set.
