Phys .org: Machine-learning model finds SARS-COV-2 growing more infectious

Phys .org: Machine-learning model finds SARS-COV-2 growing more infectious. “The model, developed by lead researcher Guowei Wei, professor in the departments of Mathematics and Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, analyzed SARS-CoV-2 genotyping from more than 20,000 viral genome samples. The researchers analyzed mutations to the spike protein—a protein primarily responsible for facilitating infection—and found that five of the six known virus subtypes are now more infectious.”
