Genomics for epidemiological investigation

A dedicated SARS-CoV-2 multidisciplinary genomics response team from the Doherty Institute and the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has been formed to conduct whole-genome sequencing and link this genomic data with epidemiological data of Victoria’s COVID-19 cases to identify and investigate new or emerging SARS-CoV-2 outbreaks and transmission to inform public health action and response.
