The emergence of inter-clade hybrid SARS-CoV-2 lineages revealed by 2D nucleotide variation mapping

Authors: Hai-Long Wang.

I performed whole-genome sequencing on SARS-CoV-2 collected from COVID-19 samples at Mayo Clinic Rochester in mid-April, 2020, generated 85 consensus genome sequences and compared them to other genome sequences collected worldwide. I proposed a novel illustrating method using a 2D map to display populations of co-occurring nucleotide variants for intra- and inter-viral clades.

This method is highly advantageous for the new era of “big-data” when high-throughput sequencing is becoming readily available. Using this method, I revealed the emergence of inter-clade hybrid SARS-CoV-2 lineages that are potentially caused by homologous genetic recombination.
