COVID-19: Origin and Pathogenesis of SARS-COV2
COVID19 stands for “CoronaVirus Disease” and 19 is the year this pandemic started, 2019. The pathogen causing this disease is the SARS-COV-2, Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2. In this project we will explore this pathogen coronavirus itself, as well as the disease caused by it. We will also look into its origin and how much it is related with already existing human coronavirus strains. Next, we will also see what are important components of the virus through which they enter into the human cell. We will also look into how much it is different (in terms of mutations) from other coronavirus strains. At last, we will see how we can identify important signatures that can significantly different under therapeutic (drug) treatment and untreated conditions

Here, we will learn about COVID-19 Pandemic and causing agent virus SARS-COV2. Here, well also get overview of this project, including objectives.
SARS-COV2 Genomics and Resources
In this section, we learn about SARS-COV-Genomics and resources that hold SARS-COV2 Genomics Data.
In this section, we will learn about the Bioinformatics approach to delineate the zoonotic origin of SARS-COV 2.
COVID-19 Pathogenesis - Protein Components
Here, we will learn about important protein components that play vital role in pathogenesis of COVID-19.
Transcriptional signature for Ruxolitinib treatment
In this section, we will learn about bioinformatics approach by which we can scrutinize key transcriptional signature that can distinguish drug(Ruxolitinib) treated and untreated samples.
