Genome sequencing being used in Spain to track spread of COVID-19

Genome sequencing is being used by a research team in Valencia to track the spread of COVID-19 in Spain.

Led by Institute of BioMedicine in Valencia, a new research has used genome sequencing to find how exactly the virus spreads.

Inaki Comas and his wife Llucia Martinez, a sequencing manager at the FISA bio laboratory who are a part of the research, said, “The knowledge of virus sequencing is really important to see spread across Europe, but is even more important when it comes to finding new treatments or vaccines, we can assess it practically in real time, because we are sequencing in real time.”
