French startup SeqOne has adapted its sequencing data-analysis platform to support a new method for high-throughput processing of coronavirus tests in its home country.

Assays like SwabSeq, Dx-Seq, and LAMP-Seq promise to analyze tens to hundreds of thousands of samples in parallel but might be constrained by sample availability.

Policies regarding data sharing and re-use also influenced people's willingness to contribute their genomic data to resources run by various types of organizations.
