The work that the U. of Chile promoted a year ago for the sequencing and detection of variants of SARS CoV2

Academics and researchers from the Center for Genome Regulation and the Center for Mathematical Modeling at the University of Chile formed a consortium of universities to support this genomic surveillance work developed by the Institute of Public Health. The initiative, promoted during the first half of 2020, is not yet funded. However, the Ministry of Health announced this week the inclusion of universities in this task to expand the detection of new variants of the virus.
