News and Updates from COG-UK

The COVID-19 Genomics UK (COG-UK) Consortium is creating networks of COVID-19 sampling, genome sequencing and analysis that use new and refined tools and techniques to provide the UK with valuable insights and data on the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Below we list the reports, commentaries and news of the consortium. Additional information is available on our Twitter feed: @CovidGenomicsUK and our LinkedIn page.

COG-UK captures SARS-CoV-2 samples from COVID-19 infections from across the UK. These weekly summaries include information on sequencing coverage (the number of sequences available in COG-UK out of the total number of people with a COVID-19 infection) across Wales, Scotland, England and Northern Ireland.
