CLIMB-COVID: continuous integration supporting decentralised sequencing for SARS-CoV-2 genomic surveillance

TLDR
The development and deployment of CLIMB-COVID, an encompassing digital infrastructure to address the challenge of collecting and integrating both genomic sequencing data and sample-associated metadata produced across the COG-UK network is described.

Characterization of SARS-CoV-2 infection clusters based on integrated genomic surveillance, outbreak analysis and contact tracing in an urban setting

TLDR
Characterization of SARS-CoV-2 infection clusters based on integrated genomic surveillance, outbreak analysis and contact tracing in an urban setting is characterized.

Coordinating SARS-CoV-2 genomic surveillance in the United States

TLDR
This work presents a novel, scalable, scalable and scalable approach that allows for real-time assessment of the severity of the effects of E. coli infection on the response of the immune system to E.coli.

Genomics-informed outbreak investigations of SARS-CoV-2 using civet

TLDR
Civet can be used on a fine scale for clinical outbreak investigation, for local surveillance and cluster discovery, and to routinely summarise the virus diversity circulating on a national level.

TLDR
SGTS was key to public health action (including case identification and incident management), and applied insights on how and when to use SGTS are shared.

Rapid genomic surveillance of SARS-CoV-2 in a dense urban community using environmental (sewage) samples

TLDR
The study has demonstrated the feasibility of rapidly obtaining vital information on community transmission and disease dynamics of SARS-CoV-2 using genomic-based environmental Surveillance using portable next-generation DNA sequencing devices.

MAJORA: Continuous integration supporting decentralised sequencing for SARS-CoV-2 genomic surveillance

TLDR
The development and deployment of Majora is described, an encompassing digital infrastructure to address the challenge of collecting and integrating both genomic sequencing data and sample-associated metadata produced across the COG-UK network.

Tracking the UK SARS-CoV-2 outbreak

TLDR
A new hybrid phylogenetic approach is described that integrates genetic data with epidemiological and travel data to uncover the roots of the UK's severe spring epidemic and finds that the UK epidemic resulted from more than 1000 transmission lineages seeded by travelers from Europe.

Tracking the international spread of SARS-CoV-2 lineages B.1.1.7 and B.1.351/501Y-V2 with grinch

TLDR
Using a combination of data from routine surveillance, genomic sequencing and international travel, a custom tracking website is built which hosts this daily report and will continue to include novel SARS-CoV-2 lineages of concern as they are detected.

A dynamic nomenclature proposal for SARS-CoV-2 to assist genomic epidemiology

TLDR
This work presents a rational and dynamic virus nomenclature that uses a phylogenetic framework to identify those lineages that contribute most to active spread and will assist in tracking and understanding the patterns and determinants of the global spread of SARS-CoV-2.

Microreact: visualizing and sharing data for genomic epidemiology and phylogeography

TLDR
Microreact can act as an end point for any tool or bioinformatic pipeline that ultimately generates a tree, and provides a simple, yet powerful, visualization method that will aid research and discovery and the open sharing of datasets.

CLIMB (the Cloud Infrastructure for Microbial Bioinformatics): an online resource for the medical microbiology community

TLDR
A nationwide electronic infrastructure that has been designed to support the UK microbiology community, providing simple mechanisms for accessing large, shared, computational resources designed to meet the bioinformatic needs of microbiologists is presented.

Evolutionary Dynamics of Local Pandemic H1N1/2009 Influenza Virus Lineages Revealed by Whole-Genome Analysis

TLDR
This work sequenced 153 pandemic influenza H1N1/09 virus genomes from United Kingdom isolates from the first and second waves of the 2009 pandemic and used their sequences, dates of isolation, and geographical locations to infer the genetic epidemiology of the epidemic in the United Kingdom.

Pandemic Potential of a Strain of Influenza A (H1N1): Early Findings

TLDR
Transmissibility is substantially higher than that of seasonal flu, and comparable with lower estimates of R0 obtained from previous influenza pandemics, by analyzing the outbreak in Mexico, early data on international spread, and viral genetic diversity, which makes an early assessment of transmissibility and severity.

Phylodynamics of Infectious Disease Epidemics

TLDR
A formalism for unifying the inference of population size from genetic sequences and mathematical models of infectious disease in populations, which may be a viable alternative to demographic models used to reconstruct epidemic dynamics.

Use of Whole-Genome Sequencing in the Investigation of a Nosocomial Influenza Virus Outbreak

TLDR
F influenza virus whole-genome sequencing is used to investigate an outbreak of influenza A virus infection in a hematology/oncology ward and identified 2 separate introductions, one of which resulted in 5 additional infections and 79 bed-days lost.
