Study Description

In less than nine months, the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has killed hundreds of thousands of people, including >23,000 in New York City (NYC) alone. The pandemic’s sudden emergence highlights clinical needs to detect infection, track strain evolution, and identify biomarkers of disease course. To address these challenges, we provide large-scale shotgun metatranscriptomics (total-RNA-seq) for host, viral, and microbial profiling. We sequenced a total of 732 clinical specimens gathered from 669 unique patients in New York City during the first two months of the outbreak, yielding a broad molecular portrait of the emerging COVID-19 disease.
