Bioinformatic analysis of over 4700 SARS-CoV-2 genomes revealed that many of the most interesting changes in the SARS-CoV-2 genome that have been reported so far are likely to be technical artefacts, rather than biological mutations.

Distinguishing coronavirus genome mutations from inadvertent errors

EMBL scientists have performed a large-scale analysis of over 4700 SARS-CoV-2 genome sequences. They found that many of the most interesting changes in the SARS-CoV-2 genome that have been reported so far are likely to be technical artefacts, rather than biological mutations.

Understanding the role of our genes in SARS-CoV-2 infections

EMBL scientists will contribute to the new German COVID-19 OMICS Initiative to study the biological mechanisms contributing to coronavirus infections. EMBL group leaders Jan Korbel and Oliver Stegle, who is also affiliated with the DKFZ Heidelberg, will coordinate the set-up of IT infrastructures to support the collection, distribution, and analysis of genomic data from COVID-19 patients.

DNA damage and repair jointly leave mutational signatures in the genome.

DNA damage and faulty repair jointly cause mutations

DNA mutations are caused by a combination of DNA damage and repair, shows study by EMBL-EBI and collaborators.
