Studying the SARS-CoV-2 genome can provide valuable insights into its evolution and transmission, as well as aiding surveillance and vaccine development efforts to help control the COVID-19 pandemic. The virus can be detected by RT-PCR in nasal or throat swab samples from patients with COVID-19, but it is detailed, sequence-based analysis that provides an understanding of the nature and mutation of the virus and the resulting disease state.
