About the project:


The objective of the project is to develop an integrated modeling framework (comprised of operational and epidemiological models) to estimate cost-effectiveness of various genomic surveillance strategies. We aim to apply this framework to the context of COVID-19 pandemic in India using publicly available data to inform policy decisions regarding the country’s genomic surveillance system.

A well-functioning genomic surveillance system provides timely, precise, and accurate information on emerging variants. Faster detection of new variants and ascertaining their functional properties (transmissibility and disease severity) increases the potential public health impact of genomic surveillance systems along with informing important decisions regarding public health response to the pandemic.
