About SARS-CoV-2 databases
The content of SARS-CoV-2 databases has been compiled from several publicly available sequence databases available through INSDC (International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration). Besides, we have used publicly available data from Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Centre and literature databases such as Europe PMC and PubMed for curation.
The sequence data, including assembly and nucleotide and protein sequences, has been downloaded from ENA. The sequences can be downloaded from the “Download “pages.
The contextual database has been compiled from available metadata parsed from BioProject (Study), BioSample (Sample), Assembly (Analysis) and Run (Experiment) files. The parsed contextual data has been curated to ensure consistency across the database. Phylogenetic linage has been predicted using the Pangolin2.0 (https://github.com/cov-lineages/pangolin).
About this website
The SARS-CoV-2 database has been developed by the ELIXIR Norway node at UiT The Arctic University of Norway. The UiT team can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org. The SARS-CoV-2 database is a part of the Norwegian COVID-19 Data Portal maintained by ELIXIR Norway.
ELIXIR members provide a range of services for studying the SARS-CoV-2 and the COVID-19 disease that can be accessed either through ELIXIR, the Norwegian COVID-19 Data Portal or the COVID-19 Data Portal.
