Nextstrain is an open source project using genomic epidemiology to perform real-time tracking of pathogen evolution. The goal is to improve epidemiological understanding and outbreak response using openly shared data from research groups around the world.
This build, which incorporates data from the Ebel lab and which is based on the work of Cole Jensen and Anderson Brito of the Grubaugh Lab (Yale School of Public Health), uses genetic data and metadata of SARS-CoV-2 that has been openly shared by many research groups.
Ebel lab undergraduate research assistant Parker Cline was instrumental to this collaboration. See his contribution below, as well as a link to the Nextstrain project main page.
DISCLAIMER: These builds use preliminary data.
