EpiCoV Data Curation Team

After COVID-19 was identified as a newly emerging viral respiratory disease and the first hCoV-19 genomes were made available on 10th January 2020 to the scientific community on GISAID’s newly established EpiCoV™ platform, prestigious institutions around the globe came together by contributing experts to GISAID'S team of curators to ensure vast amounts of data could be reviewed and curated in real-time and annotated, prior to release. Their remarkable contribution remains key to the unprecedented speed enabling real-time progress in the understanding of the new COVID-19 disease and in the research and development of candidate medical countermeasures.
