  • Genomics sequencing of COVID-19 sample

    Hello,

    Does anyone know where I could do a Sequencing of a positive Covid test, to find out the variant.
    I am located in Las Vegas, NV.

    Thank you.

    Nicolas Paz I'm not aware of anyone providing that service. I know there are labs doing sequencing on COVID patients, but I doubt they allow individuals to submit samples. There are lab service providers that will sequence these types of samples, but they're doing large amounts of sequencing for companies. I think you would have to contact them directly and see if your samples could be part of someone's run. It will be more difficult since it is biohazardous material.

      Could you give me some examples of that laboratories? I will try to contact them

        Well you could contact your health department and see if they're still doing sequencing of variants: https://dpbh.nv.gov/uploadedFiles/dp...07-02-2021.pdf

        Or you could contact different companies that are doing sequencing and see if you can put your sample into a run. Not sure if they'll let you but I guess you can try. You can search for more but the only one I found from a quick search was Zymo: https://www.zymoresearch.com/pages/c...encing-service

        I'm not sure on how easy this process will be but good luck.

          Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
          by seqadmin


          Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

          Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
          by seqadmin


          Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
