In this episode, Dr. Wayne Hogrefe and Dr. Pat Hurban discuss the use of NGS in the development and assessment of new vaccines against the influenza virus.

Topics covered include:

  • What health organizations are looking for that drives the selection of the next season's vaccine strains
  • How sequence data is used to evaluate the effectiveness of a vaccine while providing insight into the evolution of the virus
  • How the sequence data can inform the development of new types of vaccines and therapeutics
  • The prospects for a vaccine that is effective across multiple strains and multiple seasons
  • How NGS data differs from traditional Sanger sequencing data and what can be learned from that
