Recently, the research by the team from clinical laboratory department of Renmin Hospital of WHU (RHWH) on nanopore targeted sequencing (NTS) for SARS-CoV-2 detection has been published by the international journal, Small, and became its cover article.

In the paper “Virus Detection: Nanopore Targeted Sequencing for the Accurate and Comprehensive Detection of SARS-CoV-2 and Other Respiratory Viruses”, the team proposes a novel NTS-based detection method for SARS-CoV-2 and other respiratory viruses. The technology enables the detection of genomic variations, the monitoring of mutations and the typing of novel coronavirus.

As Professor Li Yan, a member of the team said, the research on NTS method started in January this year, and was first under test in the clinical laboratory department of RHWH in early February. Once proved effective, it was soon put into use in other front-line hospitals, which improves the accuracy of the virus-detection and furthers the pandemic containment.

Small is among top multidisciplinary journals covering a broad spectrum of topics at the nano- and microscale sciences, with a 2020 SCI impact factor of 11.459, and a 2016 ISI impact factor of 8.64.
