VEO submits the sixth report on mutations and variation in publicly shared SARS-CoV-2 raw sequencing data.
In its sixth report to the European Commission, VEO Consortium members summarize mobilisation and analysis of SARS-CoV-2 sequence data submitted to the European COVID-19 Data Platform in the context of the VEO project, which aims to develop tools and data analytics for pandemic and outbreak preparedness.
- Update on mobilisation of raw reads, now totaling sequencing data sets from 872,011 viral raw read sets from 69 countries, a 28% increase since the previous report.
- The variant nomenclature has been updated, and tables on countries depositing data on VOC and VOI have been included.
- The variant calling workflow for the Oxford Nanopore data has been implemented and 66,993 samples of the total 106,732 have been processed so far.
