- Our report lays out a new plan for the urgent amplification of national genomic surveillance efforts and outlines a six-part strategy to enable rapid detection and control of emerging SARS-CoV-2 variants.
- Our accompanying Implementation Framework actualizes the critical points laid out in our report, identifying key barriers to realizing a robust national genomic surveillance system and outlines practical opportunities to reduce these barriers.
