A young writer in Japan who has been tackling the pandemic from viewpoint of the news shares about using Outbreak.info to access vital data.
Through wastewater-based epidemiology, scientists track SARS-Cov-2 variants and compare to Outbreak.info data.
Stony Brook University student Irene Abraham explains how tools like Outbreak.info can help students better understand COVID-19 and dig deeper into this present moment in biomedical research.
As SARS-CoV-2 variants surface in different parts of the world, researchers rise to the challenge of examining tremendous amounts of new data.
In the past week, B.1.617.2 was reclassified as a Variant of Concern by Public Health England. The WHO reclassified all B.1.617 lineages at VOCs. What does this mean?
Since its discovery in the UK, the B.1.1.7 variant has spread to 108 countries and all US states. It is the dominant SARS-CoV-2 variant in over 20 countries.
Viruses are expected to evolve and mutate. But what is the significance of these mutations and how does it impact the COVID-19 pandemic?
Scripps Research is tracking the prevalence of new strains of SARS-CoV-2, the virus behind the COVID-19 pandemic, in an interactive dashboard for viewing daily reports.
Outbreak.info exists to help epidemiologists, biologists, geneticists, and anyone investigating new COVID-19 mutations answer important research questions.
Outbreak.info and its open source API prove to be a handy tool for studying infectious disease genomics and computational biology.
