How CRISPR Can Be Used to Detect Emerging Viral Pathogens

The threat of pandemic viruses can be mitigated by developing diagnostic tests that are rapidly implementable and field deployable. Two CRISPR-based strategies, DETECTR and SHERLOCK, have been developed recently that not only meet these criteria but offer unprecedented multiplexing capabilities. This article discusses the theoretical basis of proposed and currently available viral diagnostics for educational…

WGS Workflow: From Sample Collection to Data Interpretation

The efficiency of whole genome sequencing (WGS) workflows has skyrocketed since its inception. Major leaps and minor tweaks in the WGS workflow have compounded over time resulting in radical reductions in processing time and the cost of sequencing whole genomes over the past decades. The complete sequencing of the first human genome, named the Human…

The Recipe for Successful Whole Genome Sequencing

The success of whole genome sequencing (WGS) is shown in the quick and efficient scientific response to the 2011 outbreak of E. coli in Germany and France.1 German and French strains of E. coli were indistinguishable using standard tests.  However, WGS analysis showed 2 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the German strains and 9 SNPs…
