TGen scientists test new technology to better prepare for emerging disease outbreaks

Researchers at the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen), part of City of Hope, in collaboration with scientists at Jumpcode Genomics, have developed a next generation sequencing (NGS) workflow that could help transform the future of large-scale pandemic responses and focused clinical infectious disease testing. The NGS workflow can enable earlier detection and responses to pathogen outbreaks , variant strain typing, co-infection detection and individual human host response assessment. The workflow is pathogen agnostic and could potentially inform pandemic preparedness plans in the future.
