The discovery of such viruses means not only SARS, but other SARS-related viruses can pose a potential risk to humans. So on one hand, we started to study its distribution and genetic background. On the other hand, we conducted molecular biology experiments in our laboratory to assess whether these SARS-related viruses carried by bats could have the potential for cross-species infection. Such a series of work actually provides us with good research experience and technical solutions. For example, our nucleic acid detection methods, as well as our antibody detection methods, and virus isolation technologies. All of these take a long time to be fully explored. After this, when there is a sample, we will be able to finish the pathogen identification."

Storyline


A leading researcher at the Wuhan Institute of Virology has attributed the speedy identification of the novel coronavirus to the vast research experience the lab has accumulated over the last 15 years.

Shi Zhengli, the lab's head virologist who recently published her research into SARS-related pathogens, animal hosts and evolution, said she is proud of her team's swift reaction to quickly uncover the genetic sequence of the virus after samples of a then-unexplained viral pneumonia were first sent to the lab on December 30 last year.

"I think we have done a good job. I can say that in a very short period, we carried out simultaneously and finished the work of pathogen isolation, genome sequencing and animal infection experiments without any delays," said Shi.

Referring to the timely identification of the novel coronavirus, which saw staff able to quickly obtain the genome sequencing by Jan 7, the accomplished virologist hailed the vast and deep experience the lab has gathered in studying coronaviruses over the past decade and a half.

"We actually started to study bat coronavirus in 2004. After 15 years, our team has accumulated a large number of materials, technologies, methods and research platforms, as well as added talents to our team. Therefore, such an accumulation can enable us to understand the cause of the unexplained pneumonia in the shortest time when dealing with this epidemic," she said.

Shi further expanded on the research which has been conducted, noting her team's ability to trace pathogens and viruses, including uncovering the genetic diversities in nature which can be linked to viruses which cause severe acute respiratory syndrome(SARS)-like symptoms.

She explained how the Wuhan lab has developed the technology and testing practices which enable researchers to carry out comprehensive assessments on the properties of pathogens and determine which viruses pose potential risks to humans.

"On the other hand, we conducted molecular biology experiments in our laboratory to assess whether these SARS-related viruses carried by bats could have the potential for cross-species infection. Such a series of work actually provides us with good research experience and technical solutions. For example, our nucleic acid detection methods, as well as our antibody detection methods, and virus isolation technologies. All of these take a long time to be fully explored. After this, when there is a sample, we will be able to finish the pathogen identification," said Shi.
