The analysis of virus genomes from over 46,000 people with COVID-19 from 99 countries is published today in Nature Communications.
First and corresponding author Dr Lucy van Dorp (UCL Genetics Institute) said: The number of SARS-CoV-2 genomes being generated for scientific research is staggering. We realized early on in the pandemic that we needed new approaches to analyze enormous amounts of data in close to real-time to flag new mutations in the virus that could affect its transmission or symptom…
