This data is critical for those scientists which are working day and night to know about the origin of SARS-CoV-2. Scientists all over the world are facing problems as each day a new corona variant is producing. A huge depository of about 1.2 million sequences of coronavirus means a lot for the world.

GISAID is a non-profit scientific organization working in Singapore. Most of these genomes are from the US and Europe, however, the rest of the countries are not on the back foot. China is also fighting on the front foot.

More than one million sequences can help scientists to probe into the vaccines preparation for the effectees.

This website also holds articles about differences between different terminologies.

  1. China, January 2020.
  2. First African sequences from Nigeria, March 2020.
  3. Victoria Astralia, 1300 cases with 80 percent sequenced, April 2020.
  4. UK, 6% sequences, May 2020, and many more from other countries.

Besides GISAID, there are many repositories in the world, however it is by far the most popular. It come into existence during the year 2006.
