A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

In 2020, research entities at the Institut Pasteur (IP) in Paris, as elsewhere around the world, were closed because of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. However, IP core facilities, laboratories, services, and departments working on severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and priority projects were authorized to continue working both on site and remotely. Given the importance of its role in SARS-CoV-2 genome-sequencing initiatives, the IP Biomics core facility was fully functional during the first (i.e., March-June 2020) and second (i.e., November-December 2020) national lockdowns. We describe here how Biomics successfully implemented an emergency management plan to deal with this health crisis. We highlight the internal deployment of the institutional business continuity plan (BCP) through a series of actions. We also address the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on Biomics staff and collaborators. The added value of quality management and the limitations of risk management systems are discussed. Finally, we suggest that the Biomics infrastructure and the BCP described here could be used for benchmarking purposes, for other next-generation sequencing core facilities wishing to implement/improve their processes, and for future major crisis management.
