SARS-CoV-2 Genetic Variation and Vaccine Effectiveness

Time: 11:15 am
day: Day One Morning


  • Tracking of the SARS-CoV-2 variant through high-throughput genomic sequencing was used in the UK as an “early warning system”
  • Linked datasets have helped to associate vaccine effectiveness with genetic variation
  • Phenotypic changes in new variants cannot always initially be predicted through sequencing
