In this program, we will learn about the novel coronavirus genomics and understand how genomic data analysis tools can help identify specific viral strains, understand multiple sequence alignment, phylogenetic analysis, and the significance of mutations in the context of viral protein structure and function. We will further discuss the viral genomes of Covid-19, genes, proteins, and the virology of the disease. We discussed how the data and the various analysis tools can help in the detection of viral genomes, compare and distinguish between viral strains, identify the impact of mutations on the functionality of viral proteins, and discuss the virology from the standpoint of data.
