In December 2019, a pneumonia outbreak caused by a human coronavirus was reported in Wuhan (China) This virus was predicted as a new coronavirus, named the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV), as it caused clinical symptoms different from Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) during the 2003 outbreak Currently, most of the researchers simply use the complete genome or specific structural gene sequences to investigate coronavirus (e g phylogenetic analysis) without considering the functions of…

Genomic Feature Analysis of Betacoronavirus Provides Insights Into SARS and COVID-19 Pandemics
TLDR
By analyzing genomic features of betacoronavirus, the jumping transcription and recombination of CoVs share the same molecular mechanism, which inevitably causes CoV outbreaks and an enhanced ORF8 and a novel junction FCS are indispensable clues for future studies of their origin and evolution.
The Discovery of a Recombinant SARS2-like CoV Strain Provides Insight Into SARS and COVID-19 Pandemics
TLDR
It is concluded that the junction FCS in SARS-CoV-2 may increase the efficiency of its entry into cells, while the type 2 ORF8 acquired by SARS -CoV may increase its replication efficiency.
A Negative Feedback Model to Explain Regulation of SARS-CoV-2 Replication and Transcription
TLDR
A negative feedback model is proposed to explain the regulation of CoV replication and transcription, providing a molecular basis of the “leader-to-body fusion” model and suggesting that nsp15 may be an important and ideal target for the development of drugs against CoVs.
How the replication and transcription complex functions in jumping transcription of SARS-CoV-2
TLDR
TRS hairpins can be used to identify recombination regions in CoV genomes and RNA methylation of CoVs participates in the determination of the RNA secondary structures by affecting the formation of base pairing, providing a crucial basis for future studies.
Early Research on COVID-19: A Bibliometric Analysis
How the replication and transcription complex of SARS-CoV-2 functions in leader-to-body fusion
TLDR
The theoretical arrangement of NSP12-16 in the global RTC structure answered how the CoV RTC functions in the “leader-to-body fusion” process and revealed the associations between multiple functions of the RTC, including RNA synthesis, NSP15 cleavage, RNA methylation, and CoV replication and transcription at the molecular level.
Protein Coding of Variations on SARS-CoV-2 Genomes in Various Regions
TLDR
Through a series of linear diagrams, it is convenient to compare and analyze the genomes of the samples collected in different regions more intuitively, which may be conducive to further data mining of genomic information and refined explorations of COVID-19 for patients.
Immunoinformatic approach to design a multiepitope vaccine targeting non-mutational hotspot regions of structural and non-structural proteins of the SARS CoV2
TLDR
A potential vaccine construct VTC3 targeting the non-mutational region of structural and non-structural proteins of SARS CoV2 is designed using an immunoinformatic approach, which needs to be experimentally validated.
Antiviral properties of traditional chinese medicine against coronavirus: Research clues for coronavirus disease-2019
TLDR
A review on research and clinical trials that using TCM extracts and active ingredients against CoV was performed, and a table of TCM agents and their effects on CoV were summarized.
Multi-Epitope Vaccine Design Using an Immunoinformatic Approach for SARS-CoV-2
TLDR
The peptide vaccines in this study successfully elicited antigen-specific humoral and cellular immune responses in mice and validated the safety and efficacy of this vaccine.

Palindromes in SARS and Other Coronaviruses
TLDR
The collective counts of palindromes in the SARS genome along with all the completely sequenced coronaviruses are studied and it is observed that palindrome of length four are significantly underrepresented in all the coronavirus in this data set.
Isolation and characterization of a bat SARS-like coronavirus that uses the ACE2 receptor
TLDR
These results provide the strongest evidence to date that Chinese horseshoe bats are natural reservoirs of SARS-CoV, and that intermediate hosts may not be necessary for direct human infection by some bat SL-CoVs, and highlight the importance of pathogen-discovery programs targeting high-risk wildlife groups in emerging disease hotspots.
Complemented Palindromic Small RNAs First Discovered from SARS Coronavirus
TLDR
The existence of complemented palindromic small RNAs (cpsRNAs) is reported for the first time and it is suggested that SARS-CoV-cpsR-19 could play a role in SARS -CoV infection or pathogenesis.
DNA segments of African Swine Fever Virus detected for the first time in hard ticks from sheep and bovines
TLDR
This study revealed for the first time that ASFV has a wider range of hosts and vectors and vectors (e.g. hard ticks), beyond the well-known Suidae family and Argasidae (soft ticks).
Using Small RNA Deep Sequencing Data to Detect Human Viruses
TLDR
Results suggest the sRNA-seq can be used to detect viruses in mammals and humans and HIV-1 was found in clinical samples without the HIV-positive reports, and SMRV was find in Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma cells for the first time.

Data suggest that the sRNA deep sequencing technology will likely become an efficient and powerful generic tool for virus identification in plants and animals.
Transcriptome Responses of the Host Trichoplusia ni to Infection by the Baculovirus Autographa californica Multiple Nucleopolyhedrovirus
TLDR
Combined with the parallel analysis of AcMNPV expression, these results provide both a broad and a detailed view of how baculovirus infection impacts the host cell transcriptome to evade cellular defensive responses, to modify cellular biosynthetic pathways, and to remodel cell structure.
The Complete Genome of Brucella Suis 019 Provides Insights on Cross-Species Infection
TLDR
The comparative genome analysis demonstrated that B. suis 019 is closest to the vaccine strain B.suis bv, which has a rough phenotype and can infect sheep, rhesus monkeys and possibly humans.
Clues to the Animal Origins of SARS
TLDR
Just as the results were announced, a new cluster of 11 probable cases surfaced in Toronto, 2 weeks after the Canadian city had been declared SARS-free.
