Researchers propose new SNP-PCR for subtyping SARS-CoV-2 and its variants

CITF-funded researchers have published a short letter in Clinical Microbiology and Infection proposing a complementary approach, known as SNP-PCR, as a front-line diagnostic approach. SNP-PCR is based on the detection of minor targeted genomic variations among SARS-CoV-2 variants (also known as single nucleotide polymorphisms).
