“Explainer: What is genome sequencing and surveillance? Why is it important?”

Reference: https://www.firstpost.com/india/explainer-what-is-genome-sequencing-and-surveillance-why-is-it-important-9699531.html Genomic surveillance allows researchers to examine the genome sequence of the viral strains infecting the population. What is meant by viral genome and mutations? The genome of the SARS-CoV-2 virus is composed of Ribonucleic Acid or RNA, a single strand of 30,000 units (called bases) that make up all its genes. As the …
