The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) has been confirmed as a pandemic by World Health Organization (WHO) and it has spread to more than 140 countries globally. Besides medical staff, the scientific researchers are also making great efforts to study the virus and how to control it. Numerous scientists and researchers around the world involved in related research work and shared their sequences, protocols, clinical experiences and progresses promptly. The spirit of sharing and cooperation have helped us make continuous breakthroughs in analyzing the novel coronavirus's genome structure, origin, pathogenesis, and epidemiological studies. Now studies are more focused on clinical treatments, therapeutic drugs and the development of vaccines.
GenScript's R&D team developed a qRT PCR detection assay based on GenBank Sequence NC_045512.2. This assay has successfully detected SARS-CoV-2 in positive control samples RdRP gene, N gene and E gene. For more details and contact information, please visit this page.
The plasmids containing parts of SARS-CoV-2 RdRP gene, N gene, E gene that can be used as positive controls for SARS-CoV-2 detection, and a group of plasmids carrying the encoding sequences of surface glycoprotein and nucleocapsid phosphoprotein are in stock now! The quick online order channel has been launched.
Dr. Haisheng Yu from Institute of Laboratory Animal Science, CAMS&PUMC also deposited his newly constructed plasmids on MolecularCloud to share with the scientific community! View Dr. Yu's plasmids.
