SARS-CoV-2: Researchers at DDI do their part
Amid the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, researchers at DDI, led by Chief Scientific Officer Prof. Fahd Al-Mulla, are collaborating with the MoH to help contain the spread and mitigate risks for the population.
DDI Researchers have sequenced the genomic material of the virus from eight patients with COVID-19 in Kuwait. These sequences have been made available in GISAID (Global Initiative on Sharing All Influenza Data), a global database that allows scientists around the world to share genomic sequences of SARS-CoV-2, thus facilitating its research.
