SARS-CoV-2 Whole genome sequencing successfully completed and analysed at AHRI!

From microscopy to sequencing and metagenomic analysis.

Soon after the introduction of SARS-CoV-2 in Ethiopia, AHRI has been putting effort to sequence and analyse samples from COVID-19 patients. Although reagent delay has been a great challenge, through the support of partners we managed to secure reagents and consumables and successfully performed the first SARS-CoV-2 whole genome sequencing (WGS) and analysis; a great milestone as an Institute and as a country!
