Indian Researchers start working on genome sequencing of COVID-19

Researchers from the Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology (IGIB), New Delhi and Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB), Hyderabad have started working on novel coronavirus genome sequencing. The mentioned institutes are of Centre for Scientific and Industrial Research (ICSR).

It is a new virus and the purpose of the research is to figure out the different aspects of the virus. The study will help in understanding the evolution of the virus and how fast it can imitate.

The sequencing of the virus can be done by getting the samples of the patients who have been tested positive of COVID-19. 

 Since novel coronavirus is a new form of virus, the study will help to understand the evolution of the virus, how diverse the virus is and how fast it can evolve and what are the future aspects of the virus.

The genome sequencing method that determines the complete DNA sequencing of the organism’s genome. To get the result right, the study needs a very large number of samples for the study. Without sufficient data, the given conclusion may not be right.
