Yale SARS-CoV-2 Surveillance Initiatives
We’re using a variety of tools, including viral sequencing, wastewater surveillance, and saliva-based assays, to uncover how SARS-CoV-2 is spreading in Connecticut and beyond.

Rapid data sharing using Nextstrain
Nextstrain is an open-source project created by Trevor Bedford and Richer Neher to harness the scientific and public health potential of pathogen genome data. We recently teamed up with the Nextstrain team, including James Hadfield, to create a portal to visualize West Nile virus spread and evolution during the last 20 years in North America. We also create “community” pages to share ongoing data analysis with our collaborators and the public.see Nextstrain in action
