Genomic variance of the 2019-nCoV coronavirus



  • A phylogenetic analysis including 2019-nCoV, SARS-CoV and bat CoVs found evidence of the evolutionary link between bat and bat/SARS-CoV-like viruses and 2019-nCoV, with bat/Yunnan/RaTG13/2013 as a potential most-recent ancestor. Additional epitope identification is also presented.
