Working on COVID-19 since January 2020, at the time of our kick-off meeting in Brussels related to our European project DIAMONDS on infectious diseases.

Our web-site is open since already a few months: GEN-COVID. Please, visit it and have a look at the different areas we are working with on COVID-19. A brief summary:

OMICS on the host:

Inmunology. Soluble biomarkers related to the immune system that allow us to characterize and predictthe immune response to COVID-19

OMICS on the pathogene. Understanding genome variation of CoV-2

CRISPR experiments on diagnosis and detection of the pathogene

Publications of the group related to COVID-19/SARS-CoV-2


We are partners with our GEN-COVID project in the macro-project COVID19hg (see partners here).
