COVID-19 Genomics: A new genomic and molecular biology  study by American and Chinese researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences-Shanghai, Harvard Medical School, University Of Michigan, Fudan University –Shanghai and various genomic labs in China has revealed that the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus is mutating and evolving constantly to evade the human immunity responses.


 
The study results which has just been released on a preprint server and is being peer-reviewed has many implications in terms of all the efforts so far in vaccine developments, antibody treatments and even in drug-repurposing studies to find suitable antivirals. https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.07.21.213405v1
 
The researchers did a detailed analysis of 6698  SARS-CoV-2 whole genome sequences with specific sample collection dates in NCBI database,ranging from Dec. 20, 2019 to Jun. 8, 2020. By extensive sequence analysis, they identified
