Prof. Nicole Fischer (UKE) will talk about her research on SARS-CoV-2 virus assembly.

Many scientists in the Hamburg metropolitan area are involved in research related to SARS-CoV-2 and the COVID-19 pandemic. In cooperation with the Helmholtz graduate school for Data Science in Hamburg (DASHH), the Leibniz ScienceCampus InterACt wants to increase the visibility of this research fostering new contacts and potential collaborations. Since August 12th, 2020, we are pleased to welcome many speakers and a highly interested interdisciplinary audience. The series represents unique platform for vivid exchange and takes place every two weeks with a 30-minute lecture and room for further discussions afterwards.

On Wednesday, March 10, at 1 pm Prof. Nicole Fischer (Center for Diagnostics, Institute of Medical Microbiology, Virology and Hygiene, UKE) will present her research on variants of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. We are looking forward the her talk on the Virus Genome Surveillance platform in Hamburg with a focus on the British variant VOC202012/01, the South African variant 501.V2 and other emerging variants. Her talk is entitled "SARS-CoV-2 genome sequencing: the impact of viral mutants at local, national and international level".
