There are a number of training resources publicly available. We have a data repository available on figshare. There is also a sample sharing program to assist with protocol validation. We also have a youtube channel with training videos of specific protocols.
The NSF RCN actively coordinates with other related efforts. We encourage researchers to check out the additional resources below:
CoSeS: The Communicating Sewage Surveillance (CoSeS) project connects researchers with public health experts to improve communication and implementation of SARS-CoV-2 wastewater surveillance.
COVID-19 Wastewater-Based Epidemiology Collaborative: Join in the conversation with other WBE researchers using the Slack and protocols.io communities at covid19wbec.org
Human Health Observatory: Based at ASU’s BioDesign Institute, the HHO uses analysis of water, wastewater, and sludge to evaluate the health status of human populations.
SCORE Network: The Sewage Analysis CORe group Europe (SCORE) is an interdisciplinary network that works on development of human biomarkers in sewage for evaluating community lifestyles and health.
