Novel coronavirus complete genome from the Wuhan outbreak now available in GenBank

Updated!

Get rapid access to Wuhan coronavirus (2019-nCoV) sequence data from the current outbreak as it becomes available. We will continue to update the page with newly released data.

The complete annotated genome sequence of the novel coronavirus associated with the outbreak of pneumonia in Wuhan, China is now available from GenBank for free and easy access by the global biomedical community. Figure 1 shows the relationship of the Wuhan virus to selected coronaviruses.

Figure 1.  Phylogenetic tree showing the relationship of Wuhan-Hu-1 (circled in red) to selected coronaviruses. Nucleotide alignment was done with MUSCLE 3.8. The phylogenetic tree was estimated with MrBayes 3.2.6 with parameters for GTR+g+i.  The scale bar indicates estimated substitutions per site, and all branch support values are 99.3% or higher.

According to the CDC, as of January 11, Chinese health authorities say they’ve identified more than 40 human infections as part of this outbreak that was first reported on December 31. The World Health Organization announced the preliminary identification of the novel coronavirus on January 9. The GenBank record of Wuhan-Hu-1 includes sequence data, annotation and metadata from this virus isolated approximately two weeks ago from a patient believed to have contracted the disease in a Hubei province seafood market.

Rapid access to sequence data from public databases such as GenBank plays a vital role in helping countries develop specific diagnostic kits for disease outbreaks like this one.

    • Focusing on ground zero of the newest strain of coronavirus. Wuhan, Hubei Province Central China. -The first case recorded December 6th, 2019- Today’s Date “2/6/2020 (62 days thus far
      currently -Ongoing-
      There are at least 22,112 confirmed cases In Hubei Province
      62 days into the breakout
      Deaths: 618/22,112 (13%)
      Recovered: 817/22,112 (17%)
      (70%) Still sick
      Incubation Period Varies Person to Person
      Virus is Cold resilient
      Smaller Than SARS confirmed Larger Area of Infectious Reach with reports recording anywhere from a few feet as far away as ten yards Infected Indivuals
      Contact with symptomatic infections are certain at this distance range 0-9 ft avoid being near anyone coughing or otherwise unhealthy serious cases manifest in the flesh
      puffy soft botchy and pale skin accompanied by sweat and fever begins at this point an individual has been infected 9-20 days 70% out of the first 99 reported cases are still sick “62 days”. 28 died and 22 recovered
      medical equipment and rigorous medical treatment.
      The first reported cases of Infections contracted by Infant occurred yesterday 2/5/2020
      The 42-year-old Doctor who raised concerned about the virus to the World Health Organization has Died 2/4/2020
      “Li Wenliang – Dr. In Wuhan ” stated he wore masks and gloves. Despite washing his hands every hour Li Wenliang contracted the disease. Not good news this is alot different than SARS and MERS. Check out the Nucleoid and Genome Assembly data for All 3 and you will see this isn’t going to be an easy virus to vaccinate. It is more practical to maintain hygiene and avoid public events. Wear protective eye-wear, wear gloves and a mask to avoid becoming infected.

  9. It will be possible if the patient with starting symptoms of novel corona virus can be cured based on my research by treating it same as the pneumonia and SARS medication and treatment cause what you have said they have the same type of genome.
