APL sequences Monkeypox Virus - Part 2
Here we present the second of our two-part podcast on sequencing the monkeypox virus in Alberta.
Freelance broadcaster Don Hill speaks with APL Monkeypox virus Program Lead Dr. Jamil Kanji to discuss the significance of sequencing the monkeypox virus and enhanced capabilities APL now has to detect other infectious diseases of concern.
Genome Alberta, through the Canadian COVID-19 Genomics Network, continues to support and fund the expansion of genome sequencing capacity in Alberta. In addition, bioinformatics tools and workflows that helped generate the monkeypox virus genome sequence arose from a project funded by Genome Alberta, Alberta Innovates, Genome Canada, and the Government of Alberta.
