Trends and key considerations for accurate and efficient analysis

Research focused on SARS-CoV-2 has become a primary focus in genomic and molecular biology fields. The availability of accurate, efficient, and consistent analytical tools, including new methods for screening and studying virus-host interactions, is critical.

In this webinar we will discuss the latest advancements in thermostable DNA polymerases enabling sensitive and fast amplification, even from samples with suboptimal purity. Field applications and publications will be explored to demonstrate how reverse transcription enzymes with increased levels of efficiency, sensitivity and inhibitor tolerance have been used in SARS-CoV-2 research, including in RT- qPCR, deep sequencing, and in cloning applications.

Learning objectives:

  • Explore SARS-CoV-2 research trends and focus areas
  • Learn about major technologies used for SARS-CoV-2 research
  • Understand important features and key considerations of DNA polymerase and reverse transcriptase used for SARS-CoV-2 research
