Tracking COVID-19 ‘super spreading’ events with viral sequencing. The Sabeti Lab at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard is no stranger to handling difficult and dangerous viral outbreaks.
During the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) outbreak of 2013-2016, the lab was responsible for sequencing the Ebola virus (EBOV) genome. In their more recent work using single-cell gene expression and transcriptomics of tissues in non-human primate models, they hope to further aid the understanding of pathology, progression, and evolution of EVD.
With the emergence of the novel SARS-CoV-2 pathogen, the lab is now readjusting its focus and utilizing eLabJournal to address this new pandemic.
The scale of this project was big, and it unfolded quickly. We had to rapidly build new systems to deal with this challenge… Luckily, we were able to adapt what we had set up for the Ebola project, and eLabJournal was absolutely crucial in this work.
– Kat DeRuff, Senior Project Coordinator at Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard
