This study presents the first evidence that full vaccination against COVID-19 suppresses emergent mutations of SARS-CoV-2 delta variants. An evolution algorithm, Tajima D test with a threshold value as -2.50, can provide a promising tool to forecast new COVID-19 outbreaks. 


Transmission event of SARS-CoV-2 Delta variant reveals multiple vaccine breakthrough infections
The SARS-CoV-2 variant responsible for 6 cases of vaccine breakthrough was identified at events surrounding a wedding outside of Houston, TX and two patients from India, likely transmitted the Delta variant to other guests. Expand
Viral transmission and evolution dynamics of SARS-CoV-2 in shipboard quarantine
The findings indicate that the 11083G > T mutation of SARS-CoV-2 spread during shipboard quarantine and arose through de novo RNA recombination under positive selection pressure. Expand
Trends of mutation accumulation across global SARS-CoV-2 genomes: Implications for the evolution of the novel coronavirus
Positive selection of nonsynonymous mutations in most of the structural, but not the non-structural, genes indicated that SARS-CoV-2 has already harmonized its replication/transcription machineries with the host metabolism, while it is still redefining virulence/transmissibility strategies at the molecular level.

Statistical method for testing the neutral mutation hypothesis by DNA polymorphism.
It is suggested that the natural selection against large insertion/deletion is so weak that a large amount of variation is maintained in a population. Expand
