Launch of outbreak.info variant tracking

The Center for Viral Systems Biology (CViSB) at Scripps Research is tracking the prevalence of new variants of SARS-CoV-2—the virus behind the COVID-19 pandemic—and making this information publicly available to drive global research efforts. The daily situation reports appear on Outbreak.info, a website created by the same team in early 2020, shortly after the emergence of COVID-19. The new reports add to the website’s…
