Ion torrent-based nasopharyngeal swab metatranscriptomics in COVID-19
Keywords:Covid-19, SARS-CoV-2, next-generation sequencing, metatranscriptomics
Herein, we describe the detection of a SARS-CoV-2 genome through metatranscriptome next-generation sequencing directly from the nasopharyngeal swab of a suspected case of local transmission of Covid-19, in Brazil. Depletion of human ribosomal RNA and use of an optimized in-house developed bioinformatics strategy contributed to successful detection of the virus.
