Abstract

Tracking the virus as the pandemic progresses, with rapid sequencing of SARS-CoV-2 from clinical samples (>800 sequences from confirmed cases so far and annotated genomes from more than >600 sequences have been made public).Development of a software package (CoV-GLUE) to track how the virus changes with time during the outbreak. A paper has also been published which details the epidemiology of seasonal coronaviruses in the context of COVID-19.
