Next-generation sequencing technologies in diagnostic virology

Abstract

The data deluge produced by next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies is an appealing feature for clinical virologists that are involved in thediagnosis of emerging viral infections, molecular epidemiology of viral pathogens, drug-resistance testing, and also like to do some basic and clinical research. Indeed, NGS platforms are being implemented in many clinical and research laboratories, as the costs of these platforms are progressively decreasing. We provide here some suggestions for virologists who are planning to implement a NGS platform in their clinical laboratory and an overview on the potential applications of these technologies in diagnostic virology.
