This week we have followed the pathway of a sample through clinical testing. We have also heard about some of the practical challenges involved in both PCR testing and sequencing of SARS-CoV-2 at scale. Finally, we have heard from experts on how they scaled up operations during the pandemic and compared different sequencing platforms.

Join us next week to learn about integrating additional clinical data with genomic datasets.
