Beyond COVID: Using LoopSeq long-read wastewater surveillance to understand Enterovirus epidemiology.
Tuesday, November 15, 2022
10:00–11:00 AM (PT)
Wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE) of viruses is not a new idea, but it is one that has gained renewed attention as a potentially more accurate and cost-effective way to monitor the spread of infectious diseases through communities.
Learn how scientists at Arizona State University used LoopSeq™ to develop and test a novel method for long-read WBE of Enteroviruses during the COVID-19 pandemic, when standard methods for tracking the spread of these viruses were not available.
