Nearly three years since SARS-COVID-19 (conventionally referred to as ‘COVID’) was declared a global pandemic, much of the world is returning to a sense of normality. While the rate of death from the coronavirus may have decreased, researchers like Dr. Andrew Cameron are helping Canada and the world prepare for another near-term COVID threat: coinfections.
Genome Prairie’s GENICE II: How Genome Sequencing is Aiming to Better Protect Canada’s Arctic Environment
The world is warming, and the Canadian Arctic is (literally) melting. Northern passages through seaways once ice-bound and nearly unpassable, are opening to ship traffic. Increasing traffic means a higher risk for accidents like oil and fuel spills. Now researchers from the University of Manitoba are experimenting with portable genome sequencing tools and working with Arctic indigenous communities to help meet the challenge of a changing Arctic environment.
The World Health Organization declared a pandemic. SARS-CoV-2 was spreading through the population, and the systems in place to understand the virus were facing a seemingly insurmountable challenge. Within weeks, the CanCOGeN project turned Saskatchewan and Manitoba public health laboratories into world-class centres for infectious disease genomics.
