Preliminary in silico assessment of the specificity of published molecular assays and design of new assays using the available whole genome sequences of 2019-nCoV

PSET results updated with new 2019-nCoV genomes; 655 total genomes. Just using the subset of genomes on GISAID marked as high quality sampled from humans. Sequence IDs tested in this analysis listed here: 655_ids.zip (1.4 KB)

Previous Noblis assays showed some false negatives due to Ns, sequence gaps, and in one case the assay’s position at the very start of the genome. These have been replaced with five new assays generated at a later date using 96 complete genomes. The Noblis.57 assay and the German ncov_e_gene assay each have one FN that’s due to a stretch of Ns. All other assays still performing very well in silico against new sequences.

Table 1. Results from PSET analysis. The five Noblis assays were compared alongside the four assays from Corman and three assays from the CDC. Each assay was tested using 2019-nCoV (655 genomes) as the intended target. All off-target hits (TN, PF, FP) are to entries in NCBI BLAST databases (nt, gss, and env_nt).

Dear S. Sozhamannan,

please can you share the new primer and probe sequences of Noblis.12-57 as you did with 2019-nCoV-noblis_1-4? That would be great.

BTW: Do you know the primer sequences used by doi:10.1128/JCM.00310-20? They are not provided with their paper and the author did not respond within the last 12 days.

Thanks!

Sure thing! Here they are below. The full amplicon sequences are provided with the primers in brackets and probes in parentheses. We do not know the primers sequences used in that paper, but if we happen to find them we will let you know.

Table 1. Results from PSET analysis. The five Noblis assays were compared alongside the four assays from Corman and three assays from the CDC. Along with assays from China, Hong Kong, Thailand, Japan, France, South Korea, and Singapore. Each assay was tested using SARS-CoV-2 as the intended target. All off-target hits (TN, PF, FP) are to entries in NCBI BLAST databases (nt and env_nt).
