Hi everyone- Mark here (biomedical/biotech background), founder @ BioXplor.com, UC Berkeley/EIC/Merck accelerator startup. We are building a virus mutation tracker and RT-PCR primer analysis tool to avoid/reduce false-negative test results due to founder mutation effects in primer designs (including CDC primers) in different populations/countries for SARS-CoV-2. Our collaborators @ UniManitoba have already designed the concept but we need a UserInterface with visualization to deliver this globally. We will continuously add to this open access resource new sequencing data is published over the coming months to track and share virus mutations. Any software engineers interested to work on this would be appreciated and it will be distributed globally next week to 5000 contacts in COVID-19 related work as part of BioXplors literate discovery engine when launched.
