Sequencing of a virus can characterize it and help public health workers understand its identity, mutations and transmission. Oxford Nanopore sequencers have been used for rapid, in-field sequencing of outbreaks such as Ebola and Zika. In this presentation we explore how Oxford Nanopore sequencers, with GPU-accelerated analysis software, are being used to monitor and study the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
