The Application of Genetic Testing Technology in the Fight Against COVID-19
This webinar will be jointly organised by ENRICH in China, SENET and the IC2PerMed projects, as an overview of different European Initiatives in the promotion of International and SINO-European Cooperation in Health research.
The main speaker of this webinar will be BGI Group (a partner of the IC2PerMed project). As one of the world's leading life science and genomics organizations, BGI Group has been at the forefront in the fight against COVID-19. Starting from building a lab in Wuhan, sequencing the first 2019-nCoV virus genome and offering RT-PCR and sequencing-based detection solutions, the speaker will present details of the BGI workflows for qPCR and sequencing that have been deployed in over 60 countries and have been performed in over 1,000,000 tests.
The webinar aims to contribute to promote knowledge exchange when combatting COVID-19 by showing the role of international cooperation and presenting a valuable case study.
