From its first emergence in Wuhan, China in December, 2019 the COVID-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented health crisis throughout the world. The novel coronavirus disease is caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) which belongs to the coronaviridae family. In this paper, a comparative genomic analysis of eight coronaviruses namely Human coronavirus OC43 (HCoV-OC43), Human coronavirus HKU1 (HCoV-HKU1), Human coronavirus 229E (HCoV-229E), Human coronavirus NL63… Expand

Figures from this paper


Similarity Studies of Corona Viruses through Chaos Game Representation
Two alignment-free methods combing with CGR to perform clustering analysis and create a phylogenetic tree based on it are reported, shown to be capable of finding closest genetic relatives of coronaviruses. Expand
A pneumonia outbreak associated with a new coronavirus of probable bat origin
Identification and characterization of a new coronavirus (2019-nCoV), which caused an epidemic of acute respiratory syndrome in humans in Wuhan, China, and it is shown that this virus belongs to the species of SARSr-CoV, indicates that the virus is related to a bat coronav virus. Expand
Chaos game representation dataset of SARS-CoV-2 genome
The dataset provides a chaos game representation (CGR) of SARS-CoV-2 virus nucleotide sequences and provides the CGR of other viruses from the Virus-Host DB dataset, and three instances of Riboviria viruses from NCBI. Expand
Variant analysis of SARS-CoV-2 genomes
It is found that several variants of the SARS-CoV-2 genome exist and that the D614G clade has become the most common variant since December 2019, which indicated structured transmission, with the possibility of multiple introductions into the population. Expand
Clinical Characteristics of Coronavirus Disease 2019 in China
This was a retrospective review of Chinese medical records for laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 reported to the National Health Commission between December 11, 2019 to January 29, 2020, and concluded overall symptoms and outcomes may be helpful as well as cautious as many patients could be affected by this study. Expand
Epidemiology, Genetic Recombination, and Pathogenesis of Coronaviruses
This review aims to compare and contrast the different HCoVs with regard to epidemiology and pathogenesis, in addition to the virus evolution and recombination events which have, on occasion, resulted in outbreaks amongst humans. Expand
Clinical Characteristics of 138 Hospitalized Patients With 2019 Novel Coronavirus-Infected Pneumonia in Wuhan, China.
The epidemiological and clinical characteristics of novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV)-infected pneumonia in Wuhan, China, and hospital-associated transmission as the presumed mechanism of infection for affected health professionals and hospitalized patients are described. Expand
Non-standard bioinformatics characterization of SARS-CoV-2
The distribution of clusters of points which emerged in these maps, supports the hypothesis that SARS-CoV-2 may have originated in bat and in pangolin, and proves that the proposed approach is also applicable to a description of time evolution of genome sequences of viruses. Expand
ATCG nucleotide fluctuation of Deinococcus radiodurans radiation genes
The radiation resistance-repair genes in Deinococcus radiodurans (DR) and E-coli were analyzed in terms of the A, T, C, G nucleotide fluctuations. The studied genes were Rec-A, Rec-Q, and the uniqueExpand
Chaos game representation of proteins.
The present report proposes a new method for the chaos game representation (CGR) of different families of proteins. Using concatenated amino acid sequences of proteins belonging to a particularExpand
