Webinar: Inferring Selection Effects in SARS-CoV-2 with Bayesian Viral Allele Selection
Webinar Abstract: The global effort to sequence millions of SARS-CoV-2 genomes has provided an unprecedented view of viral evolution. Characterizing how selection acts on SARS-CoV-2 is critical to developing effective, long-lasting vaccines and other treatments, but the scale and complexity of genomic surveillance data make rigorous analysis challenging.
