This tool is designed to use Blast and phylogenetic methods in order to identify the Coronavirus types, genotypes and lineages of a nucleotide sequence.
The Coronavirus typing tool includes SARS-CoV-2 (2019) genomes and lineages, including sequences initially shared by Professor Yong-Zhen Zhang and colleagues via this post on virological.org. Professor Yong-Zhen Zhang and colleagues ask that you communicate with them if you wish to publish results that use the sequence that they share in a journal. We gratefully acknowledge their contribution.
Updated in January 2021:
- Analysis of SARS-CoV-2 lineages of concern, most notably 501Y.V1, 501Y.V2 and 501Y.V3. (beta test, please provide feedback)
- Mutations are listed in the xls/csv download link at the bottom of the overview page.
Last update: 2021-22-01: changed selection of reference sequences, improved assignments
Note for batch analysis: The tool accepts up to 2000 sequences
at a time.
