The Lab has submitted a pair of preprints. In the first, we describe our protocol for quantifying SARS-CoV-2 in NYC wastewater. In the second, we used this protocol to sequence SARS-CoV-2 isolated from NYC wastewater. In our targeted sequencing assay, we find a high frequency of mutations associated with circulating Variants of Concern.
