Grouping of viruses into families depending on their type of genome.
Disease caused by SARS-CoV-2. 'CO' stands for corona, 'VI' for virus, and 'D' for disease. Formerly, this disease was referred to as '2019 novel coronavirus' or '2019-nCoV.'
A widespread occurrence of an infectious disease in a community at a particular time.
Text-based format for storing a biological sequence starting with a single-line description, followed by lines of either nucleotide or amino acid sequences.
Text-based format for storing both a biological sequence (usually nucleotide sequence) and its corresponding quality scores.
The genetic material of an organism.
The carbohydrate portion of a glycoconjugate, such as a glycoprotein, glycolipid, or a proteoglycan. Glycans are also referred to as carbohydrates, polysaccharides or sugar moieties.
The study of the structure, function and biology of glycans.
Protein which contain glycans covalently attached to amino acid side-chains.
A group of genes within an organism that was inherited together from a single parent.
A disease that has spread across a large region, for instance multiple continents or worldwide, affecting a substantial number of individuals.
The study of the evolutionary relationships among biological entities (e.g., populations, species, genes).
SARS coronavirus 2, where SARS refers to severe acute respiratory syndrome.
Single nucleotide variation. A DNA sequence variation that occurs when a single nucleotide (adenine, thymine, cytosine, or guanine) in the genome sequence is altered.
The ability of a virus to productively infect a particular cell (cellular tropism), tissue (tissue tropism) or host species (host tropism).
The study of viruses.
