The online tool is a collaboration between the Wellcome Sanger Institute, the European Bioinformatics Institute, Public Health England, and the COVID-19 Genomics UK (COG-UK) Consortium.
The model underlying these data is updated from lineage-specific growth of SARS-CoV-2 B.1.1.7 during the English national lockdown. The sequence data come from Sanger’s COVID–19 Genomic Surveillance Initiative. Lineages are assigned using the pangolin tool.
This work is funded by The Department for Health and Social Care Testing Innovation Fund and Wellcome.
