Irish Coronavirus Sequencing Consortium
The Irish Coronavirus Sequencing Consortium is funded by Science Foundation Ireland and led by Professor Paul Cotter from Teagasc Moorepark. The aim of the project is to sequence or “read” the genetic information of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. This will allow us to track the spread of the virus and any changes in its genetic sequence which may affect the disease or treatment.
On 7th October 2020, the Consortium held a public webinar to give an overview of the project aims and methods. Watch the webinar here
