Because the director of the Telethon Institute of Genetics and Drugs (TIGEM), an Italian heart of excellence for analysis situated in Pozzuoli, close to Naples in Italy, Prof. Ballabio has launched a focused research on the SARS-CoV-2 pressure, the virus that causes COVID-19.
The analysis undertaking can be structured into three core phases. The primary: sequencing all the viral genome, thereby making it potential to pinpoint the pressure and its mutations over time. The second: understanding the change in cells affected by the virus, analyzing their inflammatory course of. The third: learning the microbiological species current in swabs to establish the opportunity of COVID-19 presenting as a co-infection with different pathogens. On this manner, the researchers will be capable to establish the very best pharmacological modulations to fight SARS-CoV-2.
